Beauty Within

Beauty Within

By Lauren.

Looking in the mirror all I see is hate

Imagining what beauty I myself could create

Why do I not like who is staring back at me?

Maybe I can deceive all those who see.

Perfection seems so far away.

How will I make it through the day?

Self-hatred radiates from my pores.

All I want to do is spread my wings and soar.

Lately life has taught me to believe

that beauty is really deep within me.
