When you look in the mirror
What is it that you see?
Could the reflection be any clearer,
Are you who, you want to be?
Do you wish you were thinner
And so you skip dinner.
Do you wish you were prettier,
So you add more makeup to the exterior
Do you hate what you see
Or do you agree to disagree?
Young woman so naive,
Do not misperceive
Everything they are telling you
Here’s a few that are long overdue.
In each and everyone of us
There is a beauty
There is nothing to discuss
Only the ugly come off snooty
My dearest, looks they come and they go
But here is something you should know
What makes you different,
makes you one of a kind
Those differences are not insignificant
So put that in your mind.
First you must learn to love and collect
Your differences and their effect
Hold them with a tight embrace
And watch everything fall in place
Including your self-esteem
Because you, believe
That you are worthy and of value
For simply being you.
