Sometimes, I feel like I am ugly.



I have been told that I am beautiful

- on the inside.


That my nose isn't big

- if you don't look at it sideways.


I have been told that I have a gorgeous voice

- when I don't have my retainer in.


That I have a kind heart and a wonderful personality

- it's just that boys my age think with something else.


I have been told that acne is something everyone goes through

- it just so happens I have friends with flawless faces.


That I am talented in numerous ways

- but there's always someone better.


It seems as if there is always

- an exception.


Sometimes, I feel like I am ugly.


But just once, I want someone to say:


"You are beautiful

- no exceptions."
Something that came to my mind. I've been feeling this way a lot recently.

To whoever reads this:
You are beautiful - no exceptions.

This is so true and so sad. Our society is warped - true beauty is unique, and therefore it has the so-called imperfections society places on people.

This is one of those poems where you can read it over and over again and still draw encouragement and hope from it. At leasdt, that's what it feels like.

Well done :iconbowplz:

AH
I know that feeling, way too well.
I'm 5'7", a weight which I won't put on here..., I have my father's large nose , I have "curves" in a town of 100 pd blonde girls, and to top it all off I have a lot of curly hair. I've always been a different look, that deviated from what everyone else thought was beautiful.
But you are beautiful. I can tell you that. (I don't know what you look like, but I'm guessing it's better than you think. We can be our own worst enemies.) But really, on the inside. You have a beautiful mind, and anyone who doesn't see that isn't worth it. The people who do, on the other hand, will find you beautiful with no exceptions.

Awwh, how sweet you are! That comment made me happy inside.

I don't feel that way ALL THE TIME, but sometimes I wonder who really thinks I'm beautiful - no exceptions. Of course, I'm blessed with a lovely family, great friends, etc... They tell me I am, but I feel like they're obliged. Like you said, I see those everyone else and can't help but feel like I don't belong. I'm 5'2"-ish, and have a busty body shape. Most people think it's attractive, but I see those blonde girls who are stick thin and feel weird inside. My face isn't very flattering, either.

Yet again, I can tell that you have a GORGEOUS mind, just for adding a wonderful comment like that. You are truly a blessing to my life, Stranger. You change lives without knowing - never stop that. Don't worry about how tall you are, your weight, your nose (I was cursed with my dad's nose too), etc. - the fact that you put a comment as uplifting as that shows that you ARE beautiful -

no exceptions.
