You Are Beautiful

however and in whatever situation you find yourself;
You are not a number, not a blunder; but an awesome
Wonder untold, ready to unfold, to hold the whole
World in your ever-expanding spirit, commanding
Animation; dictation of a new creation, an elation
Of the spirit-pantheon, child of God, free and wild,
Nothing mild nor reviled, for heaven itself has smiled;
And you are beautiful, magnificent, brilliant, elegant,
Benevolent in development ~ profusion of evolution ~
And your star shines brightly in the nightly sky
Of heaven on earth, place of your birth, now mirth;
jesus-hugging-girl2You are beautiful, not shallow, callow, nor sallow;
You are unique, perhaps meek but not weak; dæmons
Shriek at your look and brook the Styx in an mix
Of fear and horror, so near such power in your tower
Of divine resemblance and their unpleasant remembrance
Of brighter days when bore they semblance to angels
On high now so nigh to you, my dear; you are beautiful!
No need to cast yourself away in bay of hades, nor say
No worth are you to family, home and hearth; no, my love!
You are the sweet dove from above full of love and life,
And none there are like you, whomever you are … wherever,
Whenever, however; you are admirable, incredible, desirable;
You are beautiful…

  1. I am so printing this and putting up at my home office desk! Whenever I doubt myself, this will serve as a reminder I am beautiful. Thanks for such a wonderful piece.

    1. Oh thank you so much, Kally! This is exactly what I want people ~ you and everyone who reads ~ to know: You are truly beautiful and unique! I very much wanted this poem to encourage and lift people up! So thank you so much for your kind words!!!

            1. Yes … to an extent, or at a certain level. I have worked in journalism, as a freelance feature writer (published in a few papers), commentator (with a few pubs under my belt), some booklets out there, etc. And, of course, I’m quite active on this blog. However, I’d be quick to say: There’s an awful lot of wonderful talent out there head and shoulders above what I have to offer; still, I absolutely LOVE what I do, and it always brings joy to my heart and a smile to my face when someone reads and responds so very kindly! So thank you again, and blessings in your own endeavors! πŸ˜‰

              1. Noble themes. Is it okay if I ask your real name? It would be an honor to follow you on twitter or add you in fb? :)) waaahh. This is my first time doing a lot of scrolls and clicks on someone’s blog :)))

              2. Certainly, Almie; my name is Jonathan Noble and I have a link to my FB page, or you may simply look me up (Dothan, Alabama). I’ve never really been one to hide behind pseudonyms (though that’s fine for some!) Twitter? I’m afraid I’ve gone as far as FB, Linked In, and Google + but not Twitter … at least not yet! LOL πŸ˜€

  2. Reblogged this on Empower and Balance and commented:
    I love this and have been saving it to reblog!

    Learning to love myself, learning my self worth, has been the hardest task of my life. I grew up with very critical parents, especially my Father, and then have gone through so much rejection and judgement by peers, family, ex-lovers, so called friends, just for being spiritual, or smart or whatever they deemed wrong. So it took me many, many years of prayer, counseling, going to various holistic and spiritual healers and working on myself daily to get to the point of loving and accepting myself.

    My hope for you is that it doesn’t take as long for you as it did for me πŸ™‚

    You are beautiful and lovable, just as you are, just for being YOU, wonderful, divine YOU!

    Love, katelon

    1. Oh thank you so very, very much, Katelon! Your story is both profound and inspiring, and your extremely gracious words of encouragement are deeply and most genuinely appreciated! Thank you so much, and also how humbling and honoring it is that you would deem this poem worthy of reblogging. My hope and prayer is, of course, that it might touch others deeply so that they, too, will know in the depths of their hearts, minds and souls that they are loveable beyond imagination!!! πŸ™‚ Blessings to you, Katelon!
