To All The Women I Have Called Pretty

poem by rupi kaur

i want to apologize to all the women
i have called pretty
before i’ve called them intelligent or brave
i am sorry 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 thinks 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
