"I love you are just words. If you love someone you gotta show it."


Leaning in closer to the mirror

Noticing every flaw you might possess

Every indentation of an imperfection

Etched into your soft red cheeks

Examining the scars and bruises

that cover your arms and legs

From when you used to punish yourself repeatedly

Telling yourself you're too fat to take

but I must tell you something, darling

I feel the beauty radiating from you as we speak

Don't you dare say you're too damn ugly

because nobody's perfect. imperfections make you, you

Please stop hurting ill do everything it takes

You don't deserve those ugly words

The teardrops on your pillow

The scratches on your skin

Please don't hurt yourself

Just be you tiful

Your brain whirling for insults

To shoot at that reflection

Noticing everything wrong

The red bumps on your face

The extra weight you hold

Hair isn't acting as its told

Try to close your eyes now, darling

Don't think that way

Nobody's perfect I must say

Just be you tiful

It doesn't matter what people say

I want you to feel happy inside

No more tears, no more cries

No more hurting, bruises, scars on your skin

I think you're amazing

Outside as well as within

So continue being be you tiful

My best friend inspired me to write this. We have both been through a lot, and I decided I wanted to do something about the way some of my friends treated themselves.
