This isn’t something you see every day.
Beyonce took to Instagram earlier this afternoon, but instead of posting another stunning set of photos featuring her and her family, the Queen shared a little bit of poetry with her BeyHive. Though the words aren’t her own, they say a bit about Bey’s mindset.
The “Drunk In Love” singer carefully wrote every word to “The Invitation” by Oriah Mountain Dreamer on sheets of white paper. She shared her handwritten copies of the long-form poem on Instagram in four separate photos. Only one of the four photos had a caption, which simply gave viewers the name and author of the poem.
Throughout her written version of the soon-to-be very famous poem, Bey emphasized words and sentences by capitalizing or underlining. One sentence she highlighted for viewers read: “I want to know if you can see beauty even when it is not pretty everyday.”
The entire sentence was capitalized, with the word “pretty” underlined. A few stands later, Mrs. Carter capitalized and underlined the words “yours and mine.”
Could this poem have served as some inspiration for her self-titled album Beyonce? After all, Bey just dropped the video for album opener “Pretty Hurts,” and started a social media campaign called #WhatIsPretty. (Find out more here.)
