A Beautiful Girl

A poem by yours truly ;)

Chapter 1

You Would Find

You'd be right if you said
I'm not perfectly skinny
And I'll never fit in a size zero

You'd be right if you saw
How my hair isn't perfect
And it isn't made for
A shampoo commercial

But if you looked a little further
Not in my features but in my style
In the way I walk
In the way I talk
You would find
A beautiful girl

You wouldn't be wrong if you thought
My nose is too big
And my freckles too dark

You would most certainly be right
If you said
My eyebrows aren't even
My face isn't perfectly symmetrical

But if you looked a little further
Not in my features but in my style
In the way I smile
In the way I laugh
You would find
A beautiful girl

I wouldn't deny if you declared
That my eyes are too muddled
They're just a puddle of brown and green and blue

I wouldn't care if you shouted
About how my skin is too pale
In fact it's so pale it's sort of pink

But if you looked a little further
Not in my features but in my style
In the way I hold my head up high
In the way my eyes look at you
You would find
A beautiful girl

And I guess you wouldn't be wrong
If you looked all around
And picked out the faults
Of every girl in this town

Or if you managed to find
Something wrong with each girl
Each smile, each face
Each heart and each style

But if you looked a little further
Not in their features but in their styles
In the way that they act
In the way that they live
You would find
A heck of a lot
Of beautiful girls

So I wrote this poem because I know how many girls are insecure about the way they look. Sometimes I am too. I think everyone can be. I wrote this because I wanted to show people that beauty is not all about how you physically look, it's about how you present yourself and the personality you have to match.

A few of my favorite poems are
"If" by Rudyard Kipling: http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/if/
"Still I Rise" by Maya Angelou: http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/still-i-rise/
"The Road Not Taken" by Robert Frost: http://www.poemhunter.com/poem/the-road-not-taken/

Anyway, thank you for reading and I hope you liked it! :)
