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!
Thanks Mary!! It's really hard to look past our flaws and see the real us, but it's so important to do so.
ah. it is so hard for us at times to see our beauty...and how our imperfections play into that as well....smiles.
A lot of times our imperfections are what makes us unique... and there is beauty in being unique! Thank you Brian!
Real beauty is;a) in the eye of the beholderb) more usually internal than externalc) not defined, for me at least, by the mass-media promoted idea of perfection.It is our imperfections that make us individual and interesting.
Exactly!! You've summed it up perfectly!
When we become comfortable with ourselves, we worry less about the exterior. In my opinion.Pamela
I agree... and once that happens we can find peace within ourselves! Thanks Pamela!
Perfect. Not a wasted word.

imperfections make us unique and beautiful in our own way.
Yup! Exactly Truedessa!! I just wish more people would realize this!

Thank you very much! I appreciate you coming by to read!
in few words you expressed how finding her inner beautiful made her shine..lovely
Thank you Dorianna! I believe finding peace within ourselves will make us shine!!
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
Your correct! We do think about it, unfortunately, way more than we should. It's a shame really.

Yes!! It's a beautiful thing to except your flaws and see the real you. It allows your fears and anxieties to melt away and the true you can shine through! Thanks for coming by!
Lots of truth in your poem, Dana. That always makes for a good one.
