“In life, there’ll always be someone who can’t see your worth. Don’t let it be you.”
To the brokenhearted
To the ones that don’t feel good enough
To the ones without the thigh gap
To the ones who find it difficult to slip their way through jeans
To the ones with not-so-straight legs
To the ones that don’t wear a size zero
To the ones who aren’t so lucky in love
The ones who have been in several relationships
Not because they’re “adventurous”
But because they keep trying
Hoping it works out this time
To no avail
To the ones who stay awake at night
Not as a result of insomnia
But because they’re trying hard to figure it all out
Why did he hurt me?
How did it happen?
Did he even love me?
Am I good enough?
To the one going through a phase
With no one to talk to
With no one who understands
To the ones who hide their insecurities
Beneath pounds of makeup
The ones who doubt
The ones who ask themselves
Will I succeed?
Are my dreams feasible?
Will I ever fall in love again?
Will someone ever truly love me?
What if I fail?
What if my dreams are too big?
What if I’m too hurt to love again?
Just keep your head up high
You’re good enough
You can make it work
You’re beautiful with or without the makeup
And if they don’t see it,
It’s as a result of their myopia
Don’t blame yourself for their impaired vision.
