Tell them to be proud of every bit of themselves—
from their tiger stripes to the soft flesh of their thighs,
whether there is a little of them or a lot,
whether freckles cover their face or not,
whether their curves are plentiful or slim,
whether their hair is thick, curly, straight, long or short.
Tell them how they inherited
their ancestors, souls in their smiles,
that their eyes carry countries
that breathed life into history,
that the swing of their hips
does not determine their destiny.
Tell them never to listen when bodies are critiqued.
Tell them every woman’s body is beautiful
because every woman’s soul is unique.

Some days I am more wolf than woman, and I am still learning how to stop apologizing for my wild 🐺💢
The Winds howling
And Sun shining
And you say you hate yourself
And you say you're normal
Black spots showing
Moon still glows
And you say you're not beautiful
Calm as the ocean
Strong as the waves
Deep as the trench
And you say you can't be mysterious
As cold as winter
As unique as snowflakes
As solid as ice
And you say you can be cold hearted
As falling leaves fall
As the colours calm you
As the pumpkins ripes
And you say you can't be scary and enchanting
As the world moves on
People pass by
As nature carries on with their job
The stars, the planets and galaxies are never the same
Just the way you are... #poet #poetryporn #poetry #nature #scribbledletters #seekerpoetry #nikitagill #write #writer #poem #teenwriters #escape #you #season #mysterious #amazed #wow

Don’t be beautiful 💜
.They keep saying that beautiful is something a girl needs to be#seriously
But honestly? Forget that. .
.Don’t be beautiful.
Be angry, be intelligent,
be witty, be klutzy,
be interesting, be funny,
be adventurous, be crazy,
be talented - .
.there are an eternity of other things to be other than beautiful
.And what is beautiful anyway but a set of letters strung together to make a word? . .Be your own definition of amazing, always. .
.That is so much more important than anything beautiful, ever.#nikitagill
I love this😎.

one day when you wake up, you will find that you have become a forest.
you have grown roots and found strength in them that no one thought you had.
you have become stronger and more beautiful, full of life giving qualities.
you have learned to take all the negativity around you and turn it into oxygen for easy breathing.
a host of wild creatures live inside you and you call them stories.
a variety of beautiful birds rest inside your mind and you call them memories.
you have become an incredible self sustaining thing of epic proportions.
and you should be so proud of yourself, of how far you have come from the seeds of who you used to be.
>> This world is not made of shades of grey. It is made of colours like azure and coral and emerald and marigold. But it insists on painting everything in black and white and fitting it into boxes that it understands. Do not do that to yourself. Paint your personality a million different colours. Leave them scratching their heads, unsure of how to handle the magic that you are.

It took awhile for me
to find strength in my softness.
I'm so determined to be strong
I turn to hurricane
rather than ocean
and I didn't arrive here
by holding anybody's hand.
I learned to swim alone.
I saved myself from drowning,
I didn't need a man
to be my lifeguard.
