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.
