my friend is so stupid and brainwashed by white beauty standards that they wax poetic endlessly about people's eye colors. this green eyes like fairytales or 'multicolored' eyes like gravity bullshit. honestly fuck all that, white people eyes remind me that they see me as a commodity, as foreigner, as subhuman. I'm done with wanting fucking 'forest' eyes or 'ocean' eyes like when I was younger and didn't realize that beauty, value, and whiteness were not one and the same. 

give me dark eyes only so I know you're really looking at me. dark eyes that go so easily between soft and sharp it leaves me dizzy. dark eyes that half moon when you smile, so that the grin makes over you're whole face with joy. only brown eyes have the warmth I'm looking for, the heat that makes me feel wanted. that makes me feel home

Thankyou. I needed this, I needed this because I want the world to see how beautiful I am. Because I deserve to feel attractive too.

I'm tired of being left because I'm not white.

I'm tired of boys who tell me they can't be with me because I'm not white.

I am me, and I am also beautiful
