As I stare into the mirror 
I look at the hideous thing looking back 
I hate the way I look 
Im about to cover my head with a sack 
I try so hard to be pretty 
I want people to like me to think Im hot 
But no I had to be ugly 
I wish I was beautiful but Im not
Why am I ugly 
Why has God made me this way 
I want to change but how 
Be bright beautiful colors instead of a dull gray 
What am I whining about 
People shouldn't like me for just my looks 
They should like me for my personality 
That they way it is in my book 
I am an individual 
I am who I was made to be 
Who cares if I am ugly
