Beautiful Me
 
If you knew me
You'd know that
I use to be afraid of giving up
I use to hear that I just wasn't enough
I use to think the image
The looks
The walk
The talk all mattered
But it doesn't because I'm
Beautiful Me
If you knew me
You'd know that
I am strong
I am bright
I won't be wrong
If I know I am right
You'd know
You can doubt me
Talk trash about me
But you will not get the best of me
'Cuz my strength
Is equal to the whole world
So it doesn't matter because I'm
Beautiful Me
If you knew me
You'd know that
Failure is always an option
But who says it has to stop me
You'd know
I'm very mature for my age
That life is a mystery
To solve it simply turn the page
I've tried to
See the world with open eyes
I found it's easier to do things
Just a little word to the wise
But it all started with
Beautiful me
If you knew me
You'd know that
I think of the world as items
But I remember a saying that says
“Everything that glitters isn't gold”
I do this because
A lot of people with nice things
Are quite rude
But neglect to remember
That there are people without water and food
You'd know
Many people will kill
To have the things you and I have
So helping others is a priority
Because without it
I wouldn't be
Beautiful Me
If you knew me
You'd know that
I was born to be somebody
And I won't let you forget it
Because who am I without Me
You'd know
Texas is my home
But Dayton is where I roam
I found that home
Is more than a place
It's more than love
And greater than grace
Being here
I found a greater thing to be
That greater thing is
Beautiful Me
If you knew me
You'd know that
I ask myself one question
What is it? What is L.I.F.E.
I see L.I.F.E.
For what it means
L.I.F.E. means to
L-Live to the fullest
I-Indulge in you dreams
F-Free your mind body and soul
E-Emphasize that you are the only one like you
You'd know
I wake up every morning
Blessed in every way
Because I don't know
How long I am going to stay
I am my future to be

The one and only
I am
Beautiful Me
If you knew me
You'd know that
Beautiful Me
Was brought here as a gift
When I make my mark
The whole world will shift
You'd know
I won't let my trials
Get the best of me
My dreams are coming true
You just wait and see
I can't see me being
Anybody less than
Beautiful Me 
If you knew me
You'd know that
Faith is where my heart is
I will not doubt me
And neither will you
You'd know
Writing is my passion
But being Beautiful Me
Is like Oxygen
I can't get rid of it
I am
Beautiful Me
If you knew me
You'd know that
I am my rock
I am my help
I am my shoulder to cry on
But I will ask for these
Because I can't do it alone
You'd know
I am Beautiful Me
My smile
My eyes
My hair
My looks
Everything you see
Is nothing but
Beautiful Me
If you knew me
You'd know that
There will always be that
Immature group that will talk about others
Because they don't feel good about themselves
You'd know
There is a saying that says
“Speech is Silver but Silence is Golden”
This means
You weren't known
Until they put your name in their mouth
I can't see me in my life
If I'm not
Beautiful Me
So no
I am not a princess
I am not a queen
I may not have the finer things
And I wouldn't trade this
Because Beautiful Me
Wouldn't be anything
I am my future to be
The one and only
I am
Beautiful Me
