How do we face reality,
when the world's so fake?
When you're not pretty enough until your model thin, with the perfect face?
Where no one hears you unless you can sing?

I refuse-I Refuse-I REFUSE
to live by those standards

I take no part in this
masquerade
and i hate to rain on your
parade
But i refuse to go on with this charade
I won't continue to contribute to the pain

Because people out there
degrade each other, themselves
for not being pretty enough, smart enough, talented enough
They fail to see...
In God's eyes we're ALL beautiful
in our own ways
We are ALL unique
And No one's better than anyone else

So keep being you...

'I want you to look in the mirror and tell yourself twenty, thirty, FIFTY times: I'm beautiful, I'm a successs, I'm loved, and NO one and NOTHING can bring me down...
And when you feel you're losing the fight, just know that I love you. I may not know you and you may not know me, but you are a human being and that makes you my brother,my sister, and I love ALL my brothers and sisters.And just like I refuse to give in to the magazines and T.V. ads, so should you....So come on and take my hand and the next time someone tells you to be like something you're not, lift your voice and proudly say "I am beautiful, God loves me for me, and because of that I REFUSE!!!"
And just ignore all that crap...
Just ignore.
