A Hideous Beauty

We live in a world where people are obsessed with their reflection
Where every angle you look you are fooled by the deceptions
The feeling of being judged haunts you everyday
A ghost that follows everyone, the ghost that always stays
Just look deep inside, trust me, sail the rough sea
You'll find that you don't need to be called hottie
That's only a title given for no significant reason
But there's no point to strive for that title, it has no meaning
Time for a change, somebody needs to clean this mess
Just accept what you got and you'll always look your best
Take a look at yourself, look past the reflection
The body is already fine, the mind just needs correction
One day you'll wake up and look at the people around you
And finally realize that you are all beautiful
