Beyond Beautiful

Poem inspired by the song ‘Scars to your beautiful,’ by Grace Vanderwaal.

I see you despite the wall you have built
to silence
those around you,

I suppose it only makes sense
considering
the hurt you have endured
our feelings
are not always visible

and pain isn’t only what others define it to be
I want you to know
that each and every one
of your scars
are nothing less than a field of stars,
let me
paint your thoughts for the world to see
show them
beauty imprinted into fibres of your soul
you are beautiful
yes
you are beautiful
I promise
these obstacles are only here
to remind you
to shine.
