‘Don’t Be Beautiful’


“They keep saying that beautiful is something a girl needs to be.

But honestly? Forget that. Don’t be beautiful.

Be angry, be intelligent, be witty, be klutzy, be interesting,

be funny, be adventurous, be crazy, be talented-

there is an eternity of other things

to be other than beautiful.

And what is beautiful anyway

but a set of letters strung together to make a word?

Be your own definition of amazing, always.

That is so much more important than anything beautiful, ever.”

    1. Thank you so much for your sweet words, but I just wanted to clarify that Nikita Gill is the person who wrote this beautiful poem. I simply quoted her words, and they are not my own. πŸ™‚


    1. Wow, I really appreciate the nomination! I am not sure if I will be able to do this one or not, but I will let you know if I can. πŸ™‚ I hope you are having a fantastic summer! I have been offline for awhile, but I am so happy to hear from you, Kaelyn. Thanks again!
