"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding." -Khalil Gibran

Everyday is the same
Girls looking at their appearance with shame
They worry about what to wear
And how to wear their hair
Young girls would flip through magazines
And see beautiful models bring down their esteem
Behind make-up some hide
Afraid that someone would see their ugly side
Oh how I wish they would see
The importance of inner beauty
Having a blemish or a scar
Does not define who you are
Get rid of that frown
And stop putting your appearance down
Don't listen to what the mean girls say
'Cuz you are beautiful in every way
Imagine how happy life would be
If we didn't care about beauty
Right now we should take a stand
And join together hand in hand
Let us make a start
By focusing what's in your heart

I wrote this for the girls who put down or constantly worry about their appearance. I want them to know that everyone has their flaws, that's what makes them unique, and unique to me is beautiful.
