Beauty blind (for Mama)

Beautiful, truly you are
why compare yourself
to a superstar

Tears always on your cheeks
From your false perception
loan my eyes and gaze
at the wonder that is you

You are special, unique
alas your mind
deludes you
to a false reality

You fail to see
His works on you
A two-part blessing
beauty both on the outside
and within

do love you for you
like the rest of us do

and free yourself
from this lie
that bathes you
in eternal gloom
