Happiness will remain forever out of reach
When love from your life you omit
To the girl in the mirror; you are beautiful
Yet somehow you never quite fit

Not the girl they thought you’d turn out to be
When you were a neonate child
Born with a raging heart and a raging mind
But with a manner ever so mild

Your scars aren’t always visible to them
And not only hidden under attire
Lacerations to the mind are just as abhorrent
When memories and dreams conspire

So girl break the mirror if you have to
And reflect on your life as a whole
Do you really want to spend the rest of your days
Behind a fašade of self control?

Please be strong enough to go your own way
Indeed go against the grain
In your field of dreams stand up and be counted
And maybe others will do the same

You are unique and you are so beautiful
You’re everything someone else is not
The light of your reflection will shine on
Through the looking glass your childhood begot

This is so true of our generation us women are pressured to basically be perfect our hair has to be just right our clothes have to be so freaking tight our curves have to be great and amazing we have to be skinny and beautiful we have to wear make up to cover our flaws we have to basically be Barbie dolls or models to get attention and I'm tired of it.
My philosophy is if you can't look like Calvin Klein models don't expect us to look like freaking Victoria secrets angels thats just messed up!
