“To be beautiful is to be yourself.”

-Ritika Khattar

If only our eyes saw souls instead of bodies

How incompatible  ideals of beauty would we embody?

No beauty shines brighter than that of a good heart

Cuz we all know beauty is being strong, kind and smart.

Why is a lady with beautiful appearance a feast for sore eyes

When the perception of beauty is full of lies.

Beauty is a setting sun or a full moon night.

Beauty is all being willowy, voluptuous, black or white!

If only our eyes saw souls, instead of bodies

How incompatible  ideals of beauty would we embody?

Real beauty of a person is far beyond just physical appearance,

All that we have to learn is a little self-acceptance.

You’re beautiful just the way you are,

So, my darling doubting yourself is futile and bizarre.

People will say you to put up weight

Or change your lipstick shade.     

But trust me you don’t have to change a thing

Wherever you go, may it be Russia or Beijing.

If only our eyes saw souls, instead of bodies

How incompatible ideals of beauty would we embody?

Take a look at your body, your heart and your hands

There’s so much that you don’t understand.

There will always be people far better than you

But no one is like you, too.

You’re so special and unique

No matter if you’re little too broad or sleek!

If only our eyes saw souls, instead of bodies

How incompatible ideals of beauty would we embody?

Wanting to be someone else is a waste of the person you are,

Accept yourself completely along with that nasty scar.

The true beauty is the one reflected through your soul,

Not just how you look as whole.

The true beauty is not about the face or body

But about being  kind, positive, brave and gaudy.
