A poem about, 'true beauty' and how it lies within, not the false beauty society beats in our brains. Also delves into the constant loneliness of being a social outcast, but will not bow to popular opinion. Tells how the LGBTQ+ community and all other freaks, rejects, and outsiders need to stay strong and fight for our right to remain...

They say flawless is beautiful 

They say beauty is unmarred perfection

Should we view the world through rose-tinted glasses

I see beauty in the broken 

I see beauty in the scarred 

I see beauty in the tragic mind of the lost

The mind, heart, and soul are where true beauty lies

Even if it's hidden in darkness 

If it yearns to be unstoppable with a fiery passion 

With a will to overcome

A will to be kind

A will to be strong 

Then let the weak

Let the damaged

Let the defective rise high from the ashes

Conquer this tainted world of false beauty

Bring forth a new dawn

Let us stand tall and reveal our imperfections 

For we are the filth

We are sinful and impure

We are the legion of the rejects

The freaks

The outcasts

The unwanted 

The exiled

The undesirable 

The pariahs

The black sheep 

The outsiders 

The renegades 

The strays 

We… remain

WOW! Magnificent! I love the words you used in the last few lines - Freaks, outcasts, unwanted, exiled, undesirable, pariahs, black sheep, outsiders, renegades and stays.
