So Beautiful

So Beautiful

A Poem by laceyjane23

Sometimes what you see on the outside doesn't match the feelings on the inside


So Beautiful

She’s always been so beautiful

That’s what she hears them say.

But she doesn’t feel so beautiful

When she looks in the mirror each day.

She’s always been so beautiful

Some days too big, others too thin.

She tries to be so beautiful

As she battles the disease within.

She’s always been so beautiful

those words she can’t erase.

How can she be so beautiful

With such a pale face?

She’s always been so beautiful

Always the right size.

Will she ever be “so beautiful”

Or was it all just lies?

She’s always been so beautiful

With the ability to charm.

Will she live to be so beautiful

As they take blood from her arm.

She’s always been so beautiful

Now she sits and cries.

The pressure to be so beautiful

She begins to realize.

Yes she can be so beautiful

She has the strength inside.

She will feel so beautiful

No need to run and hide

She’s always been so beautiful

Yes what they said was right

Oh you are so beautiful

Because of your strength to fight.

She’ll always be so beautiful

She has so much more to give

Oh she is so beautiful

Because of her will to live.
