You are more than beautiful

BY RUPI KAUR

 

i want to apologize to all the women i have called beautiful

before i've called them intelligent or brave

i am sorry i made it sound as though

something as simple as what you're born with

is all you have to be proud of

when you have broken mountains with your wit

from now on i will say things like

you are resilient, or you are extraordinary

not because i don't think you're beautiful

but because i need you to know

you are more than that
