Stop Hiding

Wipe off your makeup

No need to hide

Put down the eyeliner

You look just fine


See that girl in the mirror

See that girl in your mirror

That's you without your mask of powder and blush

That's you without your "face" of golden dust


Look past your face

Look how beautiful your lungs are

Look how gorgeous your heart is

Look at your soul, is it clean and pure?


Now look deeper- into your heart

Your blood pumps through

Wishing that you could restart?



Look into the future, stop dwelling in your years that passed

Look at who you will be, not the girl from the years that didn't last

Put down your force field and take off your mask

Today is today and tomorrow will be a new day
