A wise man once said,

"If we could physically base peoples apperances off of ones personality today, who would we consider beautiful?"

I would argue that our perception would stay

exactly the same

For a girl who has the courage to squeeze herself into size zero jeans every morning, when her BMI says shes a size four, is a soldier

Makeup is used to cover battle wounds from the war on shaming

The commitment and talent to putting a flaming hot iron inchs from your neck to makes ones hair straight and beautiful, is only a task fit for someone willing to risk getting burned

After all, 

If you can't take the heat, get out of the volcano

But, you can't.

Either you burn in societies grip, or you get used to the heat

And for the bravest,

Even act like they enjoy it.

Maybe if Valencia may be needed to do so sometimes

This poem is about: 
Our world
