Beauty

palindrome
      noun: a word, phrase, or sequence that reads the same backward as forward

Beauty simply is
A collection of rules and standards predetermined by society
It is not
Who we intrinsically are
But
Who we wish we could be
Beauty isn't
The short girls, the fat girls, the smart girls, the poor girls
Beauty is the tall girls, the skinny girls
The perfect girls
There is no such thing as
“Broken is beautiful”
Because
Beauty is perfection
And it's the biggest lie that
We are good enough just as we are
Rather,
Our worth lies in the opinion of others
And it is ridiculous to think that
We are beautiful

(now read it backwards).
