Your special, you are, and even though the mirror may not show it behind the reflection is a bird ready to spread her wings and fly. Your special and even though no one says it, it has to be you who knows it because everyone lies once in a while. Your special and and even though you may not feel it god knows it and he makes you suffer so that the bad demons inside you can leave. Your special and I want you to hear me when I say it, Your eyes, your smile, your everything is special. Your unique like an antique and people should treasure you. But they won't if you don't and they will not if you don't show them your worth it. So open up that dark shell and show them the pearl that lies underneath. When you do they will see and though it will take time they will eventually embrace but it takes a certain courage to dream and then achieve I believe you can make it. I won't hold your hand because no one held mines, I had to figure life out for myself it's a puzzle but when it's clear the shapes become beautiful you will appreciate them. I just close my eyes and hope that you discover your talent before it's too late because special tonic can dissolve and soon you be left with bitterness of what could have been. I don't want any shoulda coulda wouldas from you I want you to seize the day because you never know what will happen sooner or later you will be happy.
