Remember You

Remember You

sometimes 
we forget
who we
are

A masterpiece
hidden
by
A
Cheap remake
believing
A copy
Has more value 
than an
Original

Remember you 
Your short comings
Create
Roots
To
Your strength

Fads come and
Go
Whats  popular 
Now 
Becomes
Ridiculous 
Nostalgia 
When
Yesterday
Bleeds
Into
Today

The majestic artist
Evolved  you
From His spirit 
Don't allow
The crayon
Of insecurity
Smear
Graffiti 
Upon
Its
Shell
Remember you.....

Being Me

 Indeed, Greg, well said 👏👏👏

"Little puffs of powder, little dabs of paint; things to make you pretty even though you ain't."  I remember the words scrawled within the pages of a school text book.  Brutal and cutting, but not entirely true. Whilst 'powder and paint' can't perform miracles they can make a face easier on the eye (in a lot of cases).  These days we are into the realms of botox, lip fillers, nose jobs, facelifts... And we don't even stop at the face because there are boob jobs and bum lifts; the list is endless. Yes, a highly skilled cosmetic surgeon can make anyone look amazing...on the outside... But let's not ever forget that "True beauty comes from within."

Hi Greg....Great message!  The world can make us feel we have to be this image of perfection by standards that are not real....It is the spirit of God within us that should shine through, not our superficial appearances that we cling to for our self worth. That "crayon of insecurity" is hard to overcome in a world that loves to tell us what we should be wearing, look like, act like to be accepted. But God tells us in His words not to be like the world...to stand apart and show Him through us. It is hard to do that if we are more worried about conformity and forgetting who we are. Great message and write. Pinned. xo ;) Love n Hugs

Brilliantly written.

Sadly there tends to be far
more copies, than originals
to any work.
