You are Perfect the way you are.
Hey,I hope you are all staying safe and healthy. This is a small dose of motivation to bless your day. To all those girls with chipped nails and hearts on their shoulders,this is specially for you.
Dedicated to the girls with chipped nails, and hearts on their shoulder. You know who you are, this is for you. You that couldn't care less about the cracks in your nail polish because you're too busy trying to fix this twisted world. Your empathy is a blessing within a curse. You feel too much too soon, and you're always walking in someone else's shoes. I know what it feels like to live with a broken heart. I know you didn't break it over a boy, nor over his broken promises, but every time the world suffers and humanity cries, a little bit of your heart dies. Your strength is your weakness. Your chipped nails are your only hope in this hopeless world. The thought of being perfect makes you sick in your stomach, because perfection won't end wars and beauty won't end world poverty. The girl you see every morning in the reflection doesn't want blow dried hair & a perfect marriage, she wants equality and justice. She wants love. To the girl with chipped nails, I know your heart reaches out to more than it's suppose to, you love more than you're told to.
The universe is your home, and the people in it your lovers. Your heart never split into two, it scattered into a billion pieces - each one beating for a better world, a kinder land, for every hand, you're trying to hold. My darling your chipped nails terrify them. The comfort within which you carry yourself petrifies them.They couldn't break you & mould you into a doll. They couldn't make you destructive & hollow. They couldn't put out the fire in your heart, nor could they separate your soul from the ocean. Nobody can put you down.
You are not able to set your feet on the ground because you were born to fly. You are the song that people skip and later find out that it was perfect. You are that girl who gives a shiver through the spine of anybody near you. You are everything happy and everything sad all at once, and maybe that is why people are jealous of you. They try to put you down. They hurt you with their words, their actions and every possible way. But you my girl, you have to stay strong and take negativity as your motivation and insult as your investment. You are everything that they want their daughters to be, sisters to be, girlfriends to be and wives to be, but no body is ready to be you and that is the beauty of being you. The way your hair curls up near your left ear, the way the sunlight hits on your oily nose and starts shining. The way your red pimple looks like a bindi dislocated beneath your eyes. Your cracked lips that is very desperate for some real hydration . Your oily hair which smells like the shampoo you brought yesterday. All this redefines perfection. You are perfection. These little flaws in you make you perfect. It makes you YOU. You are that ray of hope to the girl next house who wants to break the stigmas. You inspire people. You motivate them without you even knowing. Your love for this world is never wasted. They never tell anybody to be like you but deep inside they crave to be you. They crave to have your aura. You are born for a change and not to change for anybody. You are the daughter of this world. Your scars make you beautiful. Your character makes you irreplaceable and your attitude makes you indestructible. The spark in you will set the world on fire. The love inside you will melt the whole world. You are going to shine. You are going to steal the centre stage everywhere you go. You will write your own story. One worthy of sharing. This whole wild world resides within you,and not everyone you meet will be able to deal with that. Forgive them for not knowing what you're made up of. These are people that are adamant to destroy anything they cannot understand. Uncertainty scares them. They'll try to fill the gaps in your nails to make you perfect again but with every page you turn, with every storm that hits your ship, your nails will chip. You'll lose yourself in order to save this world. You are the life, and the air we ignorantly breathe, you my imperfect girl, are untouched by their rage & seethe.
