Eye of the Beholder

Sun, 11/23/2014 - 17:04 -- lkinzle


Flawless - without any blemishes; perfect.


I have been oppressed,

Put down when I felt my best.

Called ugly, dumb. Made void.

Judged, and destroyed.


What society doesn’t know,

And what no one else can tell me, is:

My flaws make me flawless.

I am flawlessly unique.


Amber Riley “I’m not going to conform.”

Adele “Be happy with yourself.”

Lea Michele “Love who you are.”

Beyonce “I woke up like this.”


Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

I am the beholder,

And I am perfectly imperfect.

I am flawless.
