Beautiful…

I called myself beautiful, not because i thought my smile was the prettiest

I called myself beautiful not because my eyelashes fluttered when I blinked.

I called myself beautiful not because I was tall and slim or  because I was fair skinned.
NO! beauty goes way beyond the surface.

I called myself beautiful becase I saw the brown pages and not just the smooth coloured cover.

Because I saw the building and not the crumbled bricks

Because I saw hope in destitute and water in the desert

Because I laughed despite the tears that ran down my cheeks.

Beauty is not in perfection but seeing perfection in an imperfect person or thing!

Are you beautiful?ย
