A collection of humans

In the world today, expectations of beauty are everywhere. Even the quote, “A girl without freckles is like a night sky without stars”, is exclusionary of some. Beauty is beyond skin or hair or teeth – it is essentially, inside. But, here is a list of images that show the beauty beyond the world’s standards, it occurs in merely being a person.

The arresting eyes. From ice-blue to hazel and chartreuse (pale green).

A splash of pink in her glorious water-colour.

A vibrant technicolour. She is lovely.

Although I do not know these people, I hope that they see the beauty in themselves, in their humanness, in their uniqueness. In their precious potential.
