You can call me beautiful but

You can call me beautiful

But it would be more heart felt

If you called me intelligent.

If you let me know that my laugh is


Or that the way I carry myself is


And the fact that I'm still standing

Despite my past is


Let me know that I have something more to offer.

That my personality outweighs

The worth of my physical appearance.

That who I am is more important

Because my looks certainly are not.

What you see will eventually deteriorate 

And fade away,

But who I am will always stand,

Undefeated and Brave.
