He called you a work of art and it made your knees go weak.
It made your heart accelerate and you felt invincible for a moment.
You so desperately wanted to be beautiful.
You craved any kind of attention you could get, no matter where it came from.
And how it came.
My darling, you are so much more than that.
You have fire dancing in your green eyes that could never be put out.
You radiate good energy and love with every inch of your skin.
The smallest things make you smile.
You have the power it takes to change your own world.
So why don’t you?
Why do you settle for a « you’re pretty » written black on white, coming from strangers who have no idea how much you’re worth?
Why do you crave something as insignificant as a compliment on your body?
You are so much more than beautiful.
You are powerful.
You are powerful in the way you can write.
You are powerful in the way you can speak your mind without fear.
You are powerful in the confidence you have and in how you believe in yourself.
You are worth so much more than pain and manipulation.
Don’t let anyone treat you like you are disposable.
Because you aren’t.
Yes, you are a work of art.
Because you’re passionate.
And so goddamn special.
