Since October 11th was just Day of the Girl, I decided it would be a good idea to share this one short but powerful poem. This poem is written by Rupi Kaur. I just recently discovered her and her work and I completely adore them! She just published another book of poems and proses a bit back if you were interested. I admire her because she spreads girl love through these meaningful lines of text.
"You are more than beautiful"
By Rupi Kaur
i want to apologize to all the women
i have called pretty
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 the most you have to be proud of
when your spirt has crushed mountains
from now on i will say things like, you are resilient
or, you are extraordinary.
not because i don't think you're pretty.
but because you are so much more than that
