Take aa step

Get dangerously close

Nose looks big

Lips too small

Eyes way to bold 

Now take a step back

Let the flaws fall

Look at it all

What do you see?

A girl

With hair falling beneath her hair

Lips that wish to smile 

Eyes that look within the world

So let a smile

Let the eyes see

When you look for whats wrong

You'll find the wrong

When you look for whats perfect 

You'll find the perfect

Let individualism wash over you

Like a pebble in a river

Realization comes to you in an instant

You are you

Unique, different, and beautiful

The author's comments:

 When you look at yourself closely and purposely look at yourself piece by piece you will find something that will look wrong to yourself. But looking at yourself as a whole every piece of yourself seems to be a separate puzzle piece to yourself.
