Beautiful is not trendy

Fitting the mold of a lie
The mirror lied to us all
I recall the rise and the fall
only with the truth can one stand tall…

I knew of a dynamite woman
that struggled with her self

Locked in the mirror
things became blurrier
not clearer
For vanity and sanity drew nearer…

Each day a fashion rose
thoughts to decompose
that opposed
Her creator
the one that does not use carbon paper
creates each with their own unique flavor

So what evoked strange plastic behavior
The mirror
Seeing with worldly eyes and not the Savior…

To at last the Mirror broke
and unlike before…She spoke
“God let me see me
The way you see me
I accept your word
I have been made wonderfully“…

It is true
She is the salt of the earth
She possess flavor
She is a daughter of the most high
She has divine favor!

Now She declares,
“No more sexy seeking, do not care to hear I am a cutie
It is what it is… I am wonderful “Pure Beauty”

If you do not see yourself properly, the surgery won’t change the lie that lies in your eyes. It will never be enough when you judge yourself against a changing fashion…big butt trend and tomorrow small waist line is in… Break the Mirror… cause Pretty insecure is not a sight to behold. Change your attitude and you will not be out of a boat load of money! Peace and yes you are Beautiful, if you do not believe me then ask your creator…We may act ugly, but we were beautifully made!

  1. Beautiful. Well stated truth. Women who chase a societally imposed standard of beauty [read patriarchal standards] get lost in that fruitless search for something that deep within is there all of the time, as you so eloquently point out. Women, wake up. And gratitude to the men who see this truth and love and appreciate the beauty within. It’s never about the outside. For the heart resides within. ❀️

  2. WHOA, what a breakdown of the superficial beauty King T. 😲 What incredible eye-opening verses that shows how this sister became a slave to fake beauty she thought was real. She allowed the mirror to show what she thought she was, instead of revealing her true beauty as a child of Almighty God. You captured this beautifully my dear friend. BREAK THE MIRROR!!! πŸ‘πŸΌπŸ˜±πŸ€¦πŸ½β€β™€οΈ

  4. I so appreciate you speaking clearly to bring this message and thoroughtly enjoyed how you made the distinction beautifully in your poetry. It is a good questio to ask – who’s eyes am I seesin myself through – the world’s eye places heavy and unnatural expectations on appearances. The divine eye allows for authentic pure beauty to emerge as an embodied way of being. This is so close to me heart – thank you for writing it like you did.

  5. “If you do not see yourself properly, the surgery won’t change the lie that lies in your eyes”

    Self acceptance takes a long time to achieve, it’s a daily practice to love myself. I was just looking at myself, specifically my belly and it really isn’t that bad, I rubbed my belly and spoke to my belly and took a selfie of my belly…lol it is a beautiful belly. I got liposuction last year and my tummy still was not flat enough. I realized it was not my appearance that needed fixed it was my spiritual condition. We as people are never satisfied, lust is unquenchable. Lust isn’t sex specific.

    In the words of BeyoncΓ©, pretty hurts!
