Look into your mirror and tell me who you see; Ask yourself, do I like who's looking back at me? Don't be afraid to go after what's right for your self worth; Stop chasing the things of this world and allowing yourself to get hurt.... Always motivate yourself to stay focused at all times; Cause now in this world we got DEVIL'S & SNAKES of all kinds... Be sure to give yourself love don't expect others to love you the way you love you; Cause you will be disappointed, cause they looking for happiness & love too... This world today everybody's just so confused with life; Even men getting married, a man calling another man his wife... Drugs are even legal and the law is killing us too; How can we keep our children safe today I just don't know what to do... I watch my children daily trying to keep up with the things of this evil world; I tell them, just love yourself, be kind to others and watch the love of GOD unfurl..... So the next time this world beats you down till you look in the mirror and you can't see; Hold your head up, smile... and tell yourself, this is me....

If only, we could all love ourselves for the simplicity of who we are. Looking back, I think of Susan Boyle singing - I am who I was meant to be.

Beautiful, yes that's quite the inspiration I'm speaking of because we are who we are, no matter how much we try to cover up with make up... Or hide behind knives and needles....
