your mother cried when she saw the way that you posed in the mirror
her little daughter growing up
filling her head with all the wrong stuff
striking your poses left and right
glancing back at the tv making sure you were doing it
just ..right
, looking at the "models "
you saw on tv
trying to figure out
why dont they look like me?
but your beautiful right?
you were thirteen
miss teen queen
entering the night
but you're beautiful right?
late into the night
while your mother , brothers
sitster and father
were asleep
you went on the creep
to love a man who you had never seen
fourteen years older than twenty three
but your beautiful right?
hopeless and empty
was it all that you wanted ?
was it promising?
leaving the car he said baby
youre really a star ,and i think you will make it far
but you're beautiful right?
high hopes and full of energy ,
when you got home you felt dirty
but you were the sexiest thing he had ever seen
in his eyes you were his queen\
because you're were beautiful right?
nights went on and your mother caught on
from the things that you left on her phone
sending to the man outside of your home
when she looked at you,all you could feel was alone
ashamed , there was no one else to blame
you had your two minute fame and it all went down the drain
but you're beautiful right?
