They hide behind masks,
Of powders and creams and mascara.
Have you ever asked
Who you really are?
You are not your wardrobe,
Or the reflection in the mirror.
You are not who you hang out with,
Or all the accessories you hold dear.
Are you to tell me
Beautiful is all you want to be?
Do you really think
Beauty is only what you can see?
You are far more than powders and creams,
Have you looked on the inside?
You are your hopes and dreams,
And everything you keep in your mind.
You are the songs stuck in your head,
And the imprints on your heart.
If you really want to know yourself,
You must take yourself apart.
Look at what you believe,
And the way you speak.
Pay to attention to how you treat overs,
At how you help the weak.
Do you try to stay positive,
And always have a smile?
Or are you cynical,
And never go the extra mile?
Look into your heart,
Past the powder and mascara.
Pull the pieces apart,
And discover who you are.
