just want to be beautiful

, originally uploaded by super ape.

I was so unique
Now I feel skin deep
I count on the make-up to cover it all
Crying myself to sleep cause I cannot keep their attention
I thought I could be strong
But it’s killing me

Does someone hear my cry?
I’m dying for new life

I want to be beautiful
Make you stand in awe
Look inside my heart,
and be amazed
I want to hear you say
Who I am is quite enough
Just want to be worthy of love
And beautiful

Sometimes I wish I was someone other than me
Fighting to make the mirror happy
Trying to find whatever is missing
Won’t you help me back to glory


You make me beautiful
You make me stand in awe
You step inside my heart, and I am amazed
I love to hear You say
Who I am is quite enough
You make me worthy of love and beautiful

“Beautiful” by Bethany Dillon

Who you are is quite enough. Sweet Truth to start the week on, I’d say.
Remember, “bride” does not define you.
Neither does the quality of your reception decor.
Nor your mood, failings, or bad habits.
The truth is, The Lord of Lords and King of Kings,
He thinks your beautiful and worthy of love.

    I love the compositon of the picture on this post. I love the fabric on that wedding dress and the texture it adds to the photo. Beautiful song too.
