Welcome to Passions GAngel. Lovely, touching
poem. Teens are my forte!
And, this is the advice that I give.
If you have a flaw, do not tell anyone
at all. -- Most people don't notice flaws,
until they are pointed out.
When I was teen I hated my broad shoulders.
Other girls had dainty shoulders - and I wept
so many times because my shoulders were
broad --(actually, they were not that broad at all) I had just made them grow in my own
eyes. Until to me they were extraordinarly
One day, when running track. My girlfriend
said. "Teresa you are so strong. I can't believe how you are built. Like a pint sized
amazon. Oh, how I wish I looked like you,
how I wish I was as strong as you!"
And, I looked at her, a girl of beauty,
perfect in my eyes, and could not believe
my ears. How can this be? A beautiful
teen, wanting to look like me!
It was then I realized that no matter what
you look like or dream of looking like. You
are uniquely you. And every teen has their
insecurities, and their own eyes, distort
So, flaunt your flaws or enhance the parts
of you that do like ----how to dress -
is very easy you see ---- you dress what
looks good on you never mind what is in
How do you think I felt when puffed sleeves
were in style, my shoulders to me looked
as huge as a mile. It was that day forward
that I learned what I should and should not
wear, the styled puffsleeves were discarded
immediately. I didn't care what was in style,
I wouldn't wear it if made me look like a
I became a leader of fashion --- can you
imagine. I told my friends - It doesn't matter what is cool and what is not, if
it doesn't look good on you, wear it not!
Name brands are fancy ways for big corporations to prey on young teens.
Name brands do not make you! So, if it
doesn't flatter your particular figure,
don't even bother wasting your money.
If you wear a pair of ragged jeans, wear
a blouse of immaculate style. If you wear
a ragged tee shirt, wear some slacks that
add some class ---
If your top is too small wear white
and if your rearend is big then wear dark -
If your legs are an attractive feature
get some skirts and some shorts.
I think you can get the gist here, kiddo.
If your face has acne, then don't scrub.
Lightly pat your temporary sores. If your
face doesn't shine with exurberant youth,
get some vitamins - and cut down on fast
There are so many things that one can do.
So many ways to enhance our looks.
But your inner soul is what shines through,
confidence in yourself is a beauty that no
other can surpass -- Find what you love
about yourself ------and flaunt it, head
held high with pride. Straighten your back
and carry yourself with confidence.
You will be amazed at the difference you
Oh, yeah, I made it through my teens, in case
you haven't guessed.
Great portrayal of a teen in this poem.
Thanks for the memories.
Every person has a beauty ----beauty
is not a physical thing
