NEVER GOOD ENOUGH

So consumed with being beautiful....
The reflection in the mirror.....
 Doesn't match what I see on TV or in magazines.....
So a far as I can see there is no beauty in me
So I begin to transform until I'm satisfied.
Replacing the real with fake....
With hopes of becoming beautiful......
Maybe then I will be accepted....
Love will definitely find me now.....
Not knowing that what is presented to me is not the real beauty....
Makeup...made up to appear beautiful temporarily....
Never really satisfied because you can't perfect that which is already beautiful...
If you only knew, beauty comes in all races, shapes, and sizes...
Time spent on imitating another's beauty.....
What a waste of valuable time.....
Embracing what you are not....
Instead of embracing the natural beauty that you already have.....
Look again closely.....
Can you finally see that beautiful reflection staring back at you?



I may not be good enough for you, but I'm good enough for me.

  1. Yes, I see your beautiful reflection staring back at me. Naomi when I was younger i didnot like my high cheekbones and my pointed nose and wanted to look like my friends that did not have these facial features and i felt like a misfit. However, today i embrace my beauty as an unique person that is highly favored by God. Mom

  2. Love this! I truly do!!! Makes me rethink what beauty really is. It is in the eye of the beholder!
