Beauty within

tumblr_o1hcx24yYA1v25vbxo1_1280.jpg

You tell her that she’s beautiful,
She laughs and asks you how ,
When there’s a crack on her front tooth,
And there’s a crease between her brows,
Where is all the beauty,
In her slightly too big nose,
In the freckles on her cheeks,
And how her hair take years to grow ,
And you wonder where she learnt ,
That beauty lies upon your skin ,
So that she thinks it doesn’t cover,
Everything she holds within ,
Its very definition,
Is”pleasing to the sense or mind”,
Buts she’s let them change the way,
She thinks her beauty is defined,
It breaks your heart to know her mirror,
Is how she estimates her worth,
And not the lives she’s made much better,
By simply being on this earth.
