'I'M Beautiful! '

No matter what they say
No matter how much they try to put me down
The way that they want me to feel I’ll never feel that way
They just want to see me frown
I love the way I look
But, like I said they’re not me
I know how others feel toward me
But, I’ll never let that get in the way of how I feel
I can only be me
And if you can’t respect how I feel
You shouldn’t have to make it a big deal
Because deep down I know who and what I am
I’m beautiful!
