I look at this sentence
“She is the most gorgeous of all”
And think what an overstatement that is,
That is something only in your opinion,
And I hardly share it at all,
Don’t include me in your thinking,
That this girl is the most gorgeous of all
What is ‘gorgeous’?
What is ‘beauty’?
It is within the shape of every brow
Thick or thin,
In the lips, narrow and wide,
High, low or fat,
Big and bright,
Small and intelligent,
Curious and brave.
What is ‘pretty’?
What is ‘attractive’?
That is which resides in the shape,
And size, and temperament
Of you and I,
Tall, thin, thick, petite,
What does it mean to be…
Isn’t it all just relative?
The way we think?
The way I see it,
We are all someone ‘gorgeous’
A ‘beauty’ to those who matter,
Someone ‘pretty’ and ‘attractive’
No matter what imperfections
Are perceived as ‘ugly’.
So don’t include me in your thinking
That that girl is ‘gorgeous’
For though she might be
There is probably someone I think
Who is more gorgeous than that,
Even if I am the only one who thinks so,
Isn’t that all that matters to me?
Beauty is relative,
Face and otherwise,
For we cannot all be
Definition of ‘perfection’,
Beauty, after all, is merely ‘relative’.
