Normal Evelyn 'Hell Yes' Elizabeth
ee_writes The fairest of them all
I stand before the mirror's contempt
with freckled, pocked and scarred skin
An exhausted outer layer much unkempt
But I marvel at my own appearance
For what the mirror does not see
is brimming just below the surface
Cells are constantly regenerating
in the layers of my epidermis
Their purpose to live is only to die
A keratin-rich exterior prospers
an overcoat so that I may survive
So why in the mirror am I still awkward?
Digging deeper to the networks
that heal pulling skin together
with vessels, collagen and fibres
and nerves for touch, pain and pressure

Visible only imperfect follicles and glands
Under the folds lives flawless skin
Yet before the mirror here I stand
reconstructing my own reflection

Because just like skin the ego can be bruised
A surface meant to glow and be healthy
But outer layers are abused
All in the name of beauty Evelyn Elizabeth 2015

ms.aguilera86 I think all us ladies at one point, or another have seen a "Beautiful", woman and thought to ourselves, "I wish I could have her big lips, boobs, ass , colored eyes or hair..." The thing is being beautiful starts skin deep if your heart isn't beautiful , you ain't shit boo. #skindeep #beautiful #beauty #girlpower #soulbeautiful #instagood #instaquote #igers 10h

ouatholic They are the cutest. I loved this episode (also, does any one know how to do that custom location like 'deleting later' or where people list the episode names. It won't allow me to do that and I would like to start listing the episode names above) 11h

aminobeauty_ Greta Garbo, long considered the most beautiful woman in the world, remains a classic icon of #beauty and #grace for women of all ages.
