You Are Beautiful

She said, why am I so ugly
When she looked at that girl in the mirror,
Day after day
She will never be good enough
What has happened?
Some things will never change
and new fears emerged.
Is she that broken
That with a trembling hand,
She paints a picture of sorrow
Sometimes I wonder 
If she'll ever sing again.
But today, look up
You are beautiful,
Today
Words will not bring you down,
Today.
Because today,
Is a new day.
The world is looking up
No more insecurities
Her confidence has arrived
Have you ever seen her heart?
WAIT.
Her symphony has begun,
Now all you have to do...
Is Listen.
