I look into my eyes and I look at myself
You tell me I'm not much but I'm more than you can see
I'm no person to fear
I'm stronger than you think
Smarter than you believe
You think you are my limit
I'm sorry to tell you that?s a big fat lie
Because my limit is the sky
You think you know me
You just don?t know
I'm deeper tan I seem & deeper than you dig
Beauty is not everything
Personality counts too
You think I cry because I?m sad
No I cry because I?m mad
I have my weakness but you will never know it cause I will never show it
I look nice
But I?m really mean on the inside
Don't judge a book by its cover or what you heard
Don't do this cause you don?t know me
Don't judge me on the way I look, dress, or the way I walk
Cause the only person that knows me
From beginning to end is, me
I look into my eyes and I see a person with so many dreams to be completed
