When you look in the mirror, who do you see?
Is she the girl you want to be?
If she isn’t, why not?
Vanity or whatnot?
Do you complain about what you see?
Say it’s a broken mirror, that’s not me?

Take a step away…
Take a deep breath…
Look again with your thoughts away…

Look in the mirror and see a girl,
Don’t complain about your skin or a misplaced curl.
She is beautiful in every light.
That is a female’s right.

When you look in the mirror what do you see?
A girl that someone else would kill to be?
Of course you do.
Everyone wants to be someone new.
Do you see the girl you want to be?
Not the popular girl at school, but the person you want to see?
Is the girl in front of you kind and nice?
Does she help others and self sacrifice?

Take a step away…
Think again…
Keep your thoughts at bay…

The girl you see,
Is what every girl wants to bee.
She is smart and kind, funny and bright,
And amazing in every right.

Look in the mirror, now what do you see?
The girl that you would look back and want to see?
In twenty years, would you care about how you look?
Do you want to say you’re happy with every chance you took?
Change. Is that what you want?
Do you want to say you took a front?
Are you acting like someone else?
Are you being yourself?

Take a step away…
Clear your head…
Look again with a new thought array…

Look in the mirror, now what do you see?
Is she the girl you want to be?
Do you still think the mirror is broken?
Or you looking at a girl whose true voice hasn’t spoken?
