Despite The Defects

 

You are looking at volume lacking in her hair

All I see is the brilliance  in her head

You hear the accent in her voice

All I hear is the honesty in her harmonies

You say her spine is arched and her shoulders aback

All I see is her confidence

You say she needs some beauty tips

It’s her personality that gets my heart

You want to grace her face with make-up

But her heart does need no stroke of paint

  1. I liked this piece a lot. It’s very on point considering the ways magazines, and people in general, tend to make women feel they can never be perfect enough even though they already hold their own perfection within 🙂
