In This Skin


they see me and they turn their face
Look of disgust as if disgraced
I feel a little out of place
but life had taught me to embrace

My imperfections, flaws and all
your obsession have you feeling tall
Until I broken down each wall
You only look to see me fall

I'm feeling worthy
i'm beautiful in this skin
I am comfortable in this skin
I love me for me
I feel confident in my skin
I'm going make you see the beauty
not today hate will not win

tell me exactly what it is you see
that's suppose to be wrong with me
you will not see me give it up
I heard it all and had enough
This is how I really feel
You can try, you will not kill
my happiness
my happiness
I have more appeal if i'm light as you
Ignorance is bliss, remember this
I do not have a thing to prove
