Mirror, Mirror

Mirror, mirror standing tall, who's the fairest of them all?
Is it that girl that wears her clothes too tight?
Or that slut that likes to sneak out at night?
Mirror, mirror, please tell me what's the secret to beauty.
Is it to put too much make-up on?
Or to go without eating for way too long?
Mirror, mirror, tell me quick.
All these models make me sick.
Mirror, mirror, tell me now.
Please, please?
I'm going down.
Trying to do what the models do but nothing seems to work.
I try and try but all I feel is hurt.
"Beauty is pain."
I don't want the pain.
I want the beauty.
Mirror, mirror, I'm going fast.
This question will be my last.
It was me along?
The fairest of them all?
No one is better than me.
And they never will be.
So, mirror, mirror, please don't lie.
Tell the truth before I die.

Here, here, I'll tell the truth.
No one is more perfect than you.
A vision of beauty is what I see.
Whether you're poor or royalty.
Short or tall.
Beauty is in you all.
You have to find it within you.
It's there, I know it is. Because, I can't only see the beauty on the outside, but I see the beauty within you.
Your heart is what really counts.
Not the clothes you wear or the make-up amount.
You are who you are.
You are wonderful.
You are strong.
You are beautiful.
So, tell them all, "Leave me alone.
Go home.
For it is true beauty I own."
So, there, there, I told the truth.
No one is more beautiful than you.

A/N: Hiya! Okies, dokies. So, I found this while I was snooping around in one of my aunts old yearbooks. Her best friend wrote this right before he died in a car wreck. It was originally for his girlfriend but he never got to give it to her. So, I thought I'd share this to let all of you that are insecure see this. I'm insecure about my body. I fucking hate my body. I mean fucking hate it. I read this and found out that his girlfriend hated everything about herself so he wrote this and was going to give it to her at prom. I'm literally crying as I write this. It's not the most helpful thing in the world, but it's sweet. The top is everything she'd say to him and the bottom is him. He's the mirror and he's telling her that she's perfect.
