Everyday many girls and women struggle with the thought of not being good enough. The standards that society holds up for us are so unrealistic and extremely damaging.
The battle of body image starts very early on and it seems to be never ending.
We need to change this. For our own sanity. For the generations to come. We need to learn to be more accepting of ourselves and more aware of what is beyond the skin.
SO MUCH MORE THAN THIS
Don't you worry about how your bones are structured
and where your flesh sits
or how your skin is textured
because you are so much more than this.
Let your spirit free, explore yourself in and out
be curious, be wild, get to know what you are all about.
The fabric sitting on you doesn't determine your worth
learn this by heart and understand it's all about
your soul and your words.
It's not about the shoes, the rings, the colour of your hair
know this and accept it, you are amazing
you are rare.
In fact you are the only one who is exactly like you
you don't have to drown yourself in the blacks and blues.
So don't you ever worry about how your bones are structured
or where your flesh sits
you are so much more than this.
