You know what Darling?
Throw away that makeup.
Feel beautiful as you.
Now this is not another one of those ones that is going to say acne is beautiful.
That your flaws are perfection.
Whats perfection is what you find in yourself.
Here I say,
And I have been fighting my self esteem.
Sword drawn to a gun.
A constant fight with my insecurities.
But Darling,
Do not let voices chose for your mind.
For you only live so long,
And to live in agony is to be in pain.
Embrace your beauty,
Because no one has the eyes you do,
The nose,
The cheeks,
The lips,
The skin pattern.
Embrace who you are.
Take off your liquid standardization.
Let your skin breathe .
Take away the extensions to your eyes,
The redness in your lips and embrace your beauty.
Because darling,
You are so gorgeous
You certainly do not need me,
Nor society,
Nor cosmetics,
To tell you how beautiful or ugly you are.
Your natural self is gorgeous,
Embrace it,
