Beauty Within Me

I see your beauty all around
In the sun, the earth, the sky

But I can’t see it in myself
And I still do not know why

My mirror says what I should be
And so I still try and try

To find my beauty deep within
When I can’t, to you I cry

“Why did you make me look this way?
I’m such a big mistake”

To you I cry in my sorrow
And I feel that your heart aches

“Why did you call my masterpiece
Something to be thrown away?”

“Please know I made you beautiful
And this you should never say”

And so I delve into your word
You show me just who I am

I see that you have crafted me
And for me you sent your lamb
