don’t be too bothered
about what anyone says.
intelligence sounds like you,
& pretty does look like you —
(even in times when you feel
a bit differently yourself)
— in a world that screams otherwise.


while you’re at it,
fighting all those (mean) silent battles
you tell no one about,
don’t despair.
don’t you be afraid
brave one,
because courage looks like you too.

thank you for reading. may you always remember how precious you are 😌❤️
