so i wrote a poem the other night for my nieces. thought i'd share.
you are beautiful
you are like a perfect pearl,
started from a bit of dust.
and then God lavished upon you luminous layers,
polishing you until you stood before us,
so amazing in your beauty.
you take my breath away with your beauty.
so when someone tells you
you're not pretty enough or smart
enough or whatever enough,
God built you cell by cell
millimeter by millimeter.
you can tell by nature's beauty
that God does beauty like nobody else.
you are beauty personified,
