Such is beauty! A mere deception or an accurate depiction? What is beauty?
Is it the fair skinned, straight blonde hair and blue eyes that is the definition of beauty?
I look in the mirror and I look disappointed, my chocolate brown skin and my cocoa brown eyes are not considered beautiful in any part of the world.
Historically it’s been the other way round right? From the white slave master to the colonialists across Africa, they admired that chocolate skin of the slaves and the curly hair
Funny how they forced my ancestors to have their bi-racial kids. Even the hair – having straight hair was better than curly, kinky ‘tough’ hair. Why’d you think they invented relaxers to change the texture of our God given hair, to make us feel insecure?
Such a contradictory world we live where blacks are lightning their skin just to fit in
While whites are tanning to be darker. Damn. Is this what we want for our kids? God made us in different colours, in different shades, what’s with the smokescreen, can’t we be proud of our identity?
What is beauty?
Is it the false advertising of the make-up companies? Brainwashing our girls, our women? From the seductive red lipstick to the flawless foundation, it’s hard to believe that natural beauty is considered beautiful like artificial beauty.
Makeup is the devils greatest deception, all the lies and tricks to get men who got bricks. Once she gets home her nails come off, her hair comes off, her eyelashes come off, her Nike sponsored drawn eyebrows come off, her foundation is off, mascara is off, everything comes off!
Is she still beautiful? O daughter of Eve! Do not be deceived by the beauty of this world. One minute you’re in it, one minute you’ve left it. All that is deemed beautiful is fake
From the Hollywood smile to the false teeth, to the overdosed celebs, to the injected implants, to the plastic surgeons
None of this is happiness nor is it beautiful. God made you perfect so accept your imperfections, for indeed he is perfect.
We are imperfect but where would we be without his perfect love? God created beauty and mankind poisoned it.
Mankind destroyed the true meaning of beauty.
