You Are More Than This

Location

You are more than this.
Than glamour magazines.
Than women on the runway.
Than girls at the makeup counter.

You are more than this.
Than the self hate you have.
Than the self shame you carry.
Than the imperfections you feel.

You are more than all these things.
You are everything, my dear.
Let go of what the world tells you.
Tell yourself you are more than this.

How accurate and true,

are these words you've written.

How beautiful the view,

When neither ashamed nor smitten,

Is our perspective of ourselves.
