Imperfect Beauty

Banishing thoughts of imperfection
Allowed a smile to play upon her lips
For stars to dance within her eyes
And THAT made her beautiful

  1. Dana, I REALLY like the idea/ message behind this poem. Like the idea of forgetting about perceived imperceptions.....and seeing one's own beauty as we should!

    1. Thanks Mary!! It's really hard to look past our flaws and see the real us, but it's so important to do so.

    1. A lot of times our imperfections are what makes us unique... and there is beauty in being unique! Thank you Brian!

  3. Real beauty is;

    a) in the eye of the beholder
    b) more usually internal than external
    c) not defined, for me at least, by the mass-media promoted idea of perfection.

    It is our imperfections that make us individual and interesting.

  4. When we become comfortable with ourselves, we worry less about the exterior. In my opinion.

  9. oh nice, i like this - it's never that we aren't beautiful, it's the doubts that we let creep in - and if only we didn't think about it we'd be fine

    1. Your correct! We do think about it, unfortunately, way more than we should. It's a shame really.
