Beautiful: Message to a Younger Sister

Look in the mirror
Look at what you see
Do you see the same girl,
The one that I see?
When I look at you,
I see a beautful person
I see the girl you are,
The one you try to hide
Don’t try to be someone else,
It’s just a waste of time
Smile, be yourself
And you will do just fine
Don’t worry about your make-up
Don’t think about your hair
If you hide behind that mask,
No one will know what’s there
So tell me that you understand
And tell me that you’ll listen
For the girl that I see,
Is perfect in every way!
