A quick heads up

A quick heads up

i want to apologize to all the women

i have called pretty

before I called them intelligent or brave

i am sorry that i made it sound as though

something as simple as what you’re born with

is the most you have to be proud of

when your spirit has crushed mountains

from now on, I will say things like you are resilient

or, you are extraordinary

not because i don’t think you’re pretty

but because you are so much more than that
