UGLY DUCKLING

Written by: Madelin Barton

You are beautiful to me
your hurt is not unseen.
Quietly you fret over all
You can't seem to forget

Nothing like today
to  escape  sorrows
and if it isn't conquered today
I'll sure be with you tomorrow.

Your beautiful to me If only
you could see what I see.
Regardless of the tease, the
mockery, the strife.
Cruel words spoken that cut 
like a knife.

You are beautiful to me in every
way and I'm sorry that it was not
made known to you each and every
single day.
