Behind Me is Me


Behind me is me

If only they could really see

that my beauty is skin deep

not all is just vanity

when I take off my makeup

and let my hair fly free

I know behind the me they see

is a girl who isn't perfect

you see I don't need CoverGirl

to tell me "I'm worth it"

I don't need a magazine to tell me I'm in style

I know these fads are just for a while

If only they knew just why I smile

See my they tease me

they love me

then they constantly hate

but they don't see that it's beauty

only God could create

I'm only here for a second

it surely seems to be

but while I'm on this earth

let me stop being scrared

and let the real me

be ME.




that was very empowering. loved it
