Mom? Am I beautiful?
Don't tell me I am inside
Where it counts.
I know that's where it counts.
But am I beautiful?

Daddy? Am I beautiful?
I know you love me.
I love you, too.
But please answer my question.
Am I beautiful?

Mirror? Am I beautiful?
Isn't there any part of me
that's pretty?
Even just a little bit?
Am I beautiful?

Grandma? Am I beautiful?
Don't tell me appearances don't matter.
You're wrong. They do.
Even if the other stuff matters more.
Am I beautiful?

God? Am I beautiful?
What? You made me?
And you love it all?
My sparkling eyes and my big smile and the way my hair shines?
You think I'm' I'm beautiful?
