Beautiful Warrior

The world has caused this blindness; the misconception.

Too easily we forget to look further than only skin-deep.

There are true beauty and grace in being your own warrior

and not standing back – being brave and taking the leap.


Being a warrior and standing up for what you believe in,

teaches you to open your eyes and see – to free your mind.

Knowledge colours the world; no longer just black and white.

Your true beauty lies in being a fighter and remaining kind.


Be who you are and let the truth shine from your smile,

carry your scars with pride –

show the world you don’t stand back from the fight.

Let love guide you every step of the way; through every mile.

You are a warrior – a lion – that wears beauty as a crown.
