"Magic is believing in yourself. If you can do that, you can do anything." -Foka Gomez

I look at myself in the mirror,

And I’m starting to realize who I truly am:

Kind to everyone who needs a smile

An imagination that never sleeps,

Determination at its peak,

Yeah, that’s me.

I look at myself in the mirror,

And I see happiness,

I see success,

I see a friendly disposition,

I see a girl who refuses to give up,

I see a girl who doesn’t want to grow up,

I see a girl who learned how to forgive,

I see a girl who prays for happiness and good health for all,

Each and every day,

I see a girl who prays for their friends,

And the prayers are always answered.

I see a girl who is hopelessly confused,

But even more insecure,

Yeah, that’s just me.

I put on a smile,

For all the world to see,

For better or for worse,

My heart breaks when I

See a sad face in my presence,

For then I feel sad and depressed, too.

No one really knows, except me,

How much good a simple smile can do.

Yeah, that’s just me.

So now I ask myself:

Who am I really?

But, the answer is quite simple:

I am everyone’s smile,

And my heart breaks when a friend is having a bad day.

I only achieve success,

By pure willpower and determination…

Passion for my writing is what motivates me…

To be me.

Yeah, that’s just me.

This is me. Nobody's perfect, but everyone should try to be happy. Happiness is the best feeling to experience.
