You Are Not Beautiful

You are not beautiful.

Not in conventional ways, that is.
 

You are not beautiful

because you have a little extra

roll of fat just below your belly button.

           

You are beautiful because

the gut-laugh that comes out

when you feel a sense of abandon

is the happiest sound one can make.

 

You are not beautiful

because your legs are a little too long

to look normal on your body.
 

You are beautiful because

those long, lanky legs of yours

bring you running to the aid

of even the most obscure strangers.
 

You are not beautiful

because the obscenities that come from your mouth

are the least lady-like words imaginable.
 

You are beautiful because

your language is filled

with such richness and depth

that people strain to hear what you have to say.
 

You are not beautiful

because your love of the male physique

is a little too blatant for a girl your age.

 

You are beautiful because

you never try to hide your thoughts

and the men you're with worship you

because you never leave them wondering.

 

You are not beautiful because

you never stick up for yourself

and let people say whatever they want.

 

You are beautiful because

you are secure in yourself

and don't allow petty thoughts

interfere with your knowledge of yourself.

 

You are not beautiful,

because you are not conventional.
 

You are beautiful because

you are unpredictable,

unconventional.
