PRETTY

They say beauty is in the eye of the beholder and yet as I stand here looking at the mess in the mirror I beg to differ.  I’m not a beauty nor do I feel pretty.  What I see is quite the opposite.  I see ugly, useless, dirty person with no future.  I wish I can be pretty, as pretty as the actress that grace the silver screen.  I wish I can be pretty, as pretty as those models who are splashed on the cover of sports magazines.  I wish I can be pretty, as pretty as the girl sitting across from me on the bus.  I wish I had better eyes to see what you see a beautiful girl.

This short was inspired by group of ten-year olds grade school girls self-discovery in a world that values beauty over substance.  Beauty is in the eye of the beholder if you tell yourself you are then it will be.  Be sure to tell your little beauties they are beautiful, pretty, smart and loved.

Be Kind
