Two photos of the day : you are beautiful

Model: Miss S., Film: Ilford B/W 400
Style: Editorial Fashion + Nude + Sensual Portrait
let me tell you something about you
you were born on day time or night
your mother was a woman
even if you never saw her again
or if you are still living with her
your father was a man
even if he was just a sperm donor
or if he is still balancing your check book
(if you have a check book)
let me venture a guess
that you cried when you were born
even if not right then
perhaps later
because life makes sure of that
you fell in love one day
or you thought you did
it could be with yourself
it could be with the idea of love
the guy or the girl in the movies or magazines
or your neighbour, coworkers, the soup kitchen server , the princess
or even your distant cousin (!)

you hated something or some one
it could be because of your insecurities
or theirs
or both
as well as the rest of the world
you were kind at times
you were cruel at others
you were celebrated in something
drawing, painting, running, pickpocketing
bullying, talking,
being a victim, singing in your church choir or rock band
drinking or drug use or cooking
crying out loud or making people laugh
or maybe even writing
you were noticed for something
and that made you feel good
so you kept at it
even if it was wrong for you
or others
because what else you could do?
and who can say what is wrong anyway?
you are beautiful
if you are fat or skinny
if you are bald or dirty

if you are a freak or the definition of boring

if you are sick or healthy
if you are sixteen or ninety
you probably are beautiful
