Be enough for yourself!

Odyssey Poetry: To Be Enough
https://weheartit.com/entry/335791737?context_query=beauty+standards&context_type=search

Young and naïve,

The girl wanted to see what they wanted her to be.

She felt out of place,

Without the space

She wanted to build herself into the person she is meant to be.

Built herself into beauty,

The society has shown her that vision.

The vision felt unreachable.



Will she change herself to fit in?

She is weak; she will be left behind

To change herself will ruin her originality.

She feels empty with her dyed hair and caked face.

Is enough what she is now?

Enough to fit within the worthiness to those around her.



Being enough and beauty walk hand in hand.

The young girl fights to fix herself,

She reaches to forgive herself to think she was not enough.

Reaching for validation from people around her,

Will only satisfy the girl for a little time.
