A hero to save me

i looked in the mirror today

and hated what i saw

i piled on make up

just to feel like i look beautiful

people tell me I'm beautiful

without the make up

they say, I'm pretty just the way i am

but i cant see what they see

i think they are crazy

or maybe its me, maybe I'm the crazy one

it is me, i put myself down, i hate the way i look, i feel so overweight

to worthless to love

daddy said I'm fat, said i needed to be 80 lbs to be the perfect weight

i believed everything he said to me

and as i walk away, years later

after i was rescued

i still cant stop my mind

from repeating those things

i met a boy at school

i was a little scared

when he asked me out

because i didn't want him to be like the rest

i said yes, thought id give love another try

he turned out to be wonderful

loving, caring, everything i wanted

i love him and i try to believe

everything he sees, and says to me

he says,

I'm beautiful

incredible

totally worth it

funny

irresistible

everything you wanted

i am glad he found me

he actually loves me

he is making me believe

that i am somebody

that i matter

he is my love

and i will love him forever and ever.
