I am Beautiful

This is also a poem largely influenced by Pooja Nansi.

I am beautiful because I demand attention.

I am beautiful because I look at people straight in the eye.

I am beautiful because I dare to dine alone.

I am beautiful because I greet myself in the mirror every morning.

I am beautiful because I challenge and respect people.

I am beautiful because I am not afraid to say that I’ve been cheated on.

I am beautiful because I crave art. The kind on walls and the kind in people.

I am beautiful because I make out with my eyes closed.

I am beautiful because I dare to heal by loving other people.

I am beautiful because I fight to live every single day.

I am beautiful because I am trusting even though I was betrayed.

I am beautiful because I am imperfect, but also perfect in my own ways.

I am beautiful,

I am beyond beautiful because

The bible says I’m fearfully and wonderfully made,

and also because I say I am.
