    Constantly attempting to express
    To you, I keep tryin to explain
    Persistently, yet vainly tryna run away
    Tryin to escape the pain
    Who ever said it wasn't lying:
    It pours when it rains :crying:
    My last resort is to release myself verbally
    But how can I let go of my inhibitions
    My family instilled in me that I was unattractive
    Man, this is NOT just superstition
    And I know that you dont beleive me
    When I say Im not pretty in my eyes
    I have to believe in my heart first
    And to be honest I can only try
    Your love lifts me to the highest of hights
    And takes me to the farrest of lands
    But this is something you haven't experienced
    So I can't make you understand
    This isn't just low self-esteem
    I've been brutally blessed with self hate
    It seems Im doomed to misperception
    This feeling I cant even articulate
    Misperception of myself :uhoh:
    and of many of those that are surrounding me
    Im grateful that you love me
    yet in awe of the beauty you found in me
    But this feeling I have of myself
    Can only be dipspersed in one way
    It comes from within and with time
    And I dont know if today is the day
    I hope that u can find it in you
    to wait while I continue my search for self
    And in time I will find your words to be true
    That in beauty I carry wealth.

    Only a self-absorbed person only sees physical beauty, cuz beauty fades after time, but the mind continues 2 grow.

    Once U believe that's where your true beauty lies, then you'll be on top of the game.

    Embrace yourself.

    Beauty can be found in many forms, in many ways...blessed are you if you have found someone who can truly see yours. Nicely posed.

    I second the words of PositiveMindset but
    also...
    sometimes it's good to follow the light
    of love when it comes your way...
    light...leads
    and quite often when someone sees
    something that we do not...they can
    help our eyes to open...
    allow your eyes to open...
    Moving piece
    I'm relatin...
