What they didn't tell you about true beauty....

We went from wake up and dress up

to taking our time to impressed looks

but what evey girl fail to realize

is that the only beauty that counts

is the one that lives inside.

True beauty is self-respect,


inner-hate neglect.

No need to show more,

or try to add on

just so you can put on a show.

Love yourself as you are

your big lips,

small hands or

thick hips.


dark or


What they didn't tell you,

was no matter how hard you try

You will always be YOU.

So love yourself or

no one else will.
