If She Was Alone

If she were all alone
And nobody was near
She might love herself
And have nothing to fear

Yet when she looks in the mirror
She never thinks to smile
Because she has been told time after time
That she is not worth while

When people say she’s beautiful
She dismisses each compliment as a lie
Because when she sees the models in the media
Inside all she can do is cry

The world has taught her
To judge and cut herself down
But what if when she looked in the mirror
She refused to frown
And let herself smile instead
