The Beautiful Truths about You
The world whispers in our ears some days.
“You’ve got to look this way…
Size six, top picks, lipsticks…
It’s our highway.”
And it makes you think:
“I’m worthless, fat, ugly…”
And we struggle to meet the standards of “high society”.
But underneath all the noise and mayhem a voice is insisting: “Ignore them.”
“There’s more past your reflection…
There’s more to this perception…
So ignore the world’s deceptions…
For there is beauty in imperfection…”
Because every hair, God gave you, every toe and nail, He made you,
And you’re perfect in His eyes.
This, this is what He says:
“You’re beautiful, just the way you are.
You don’t need youthful fountains or facial creams,
You shine brighter than any star.
And deserve to chase your dreams.
You’re strong and pretty, lively and witty,
And I love you the way you are.”
Sometimes we just need a little reminder,
Sometimes we need to believe those truths.
You don’t need to look too deep to find her,
So just go be that beautiful you!
