Be bright, be beautiful, and most of all, be YOU! You were sculpted by the sculptor of the stars; glow, you miracle you!

Message to Readers

A poem about a girl who is scrutinizing her reflection and "fixing" herself. Know that if you ever feel this way about yourself, stop. Its not you, and you ARE beautiful. We are our own worst critic, and we tend to overthink others' judgement. Besides, what is the worst that could happen if they do decide to judge you on your looks? Well, they miss out on the awesomeness that is you, AND GUESS WHAT?!? In 10 years, no even 5 years, you'll hardly even remember them. Its OKAY. God created you to be you, and he is the greatest artist of all time. If he looks at his creation of you and says it is good, than who are you/they to argue with him?!
