You And Me

You And Me

A Poem by Undying Glory
"

Dedicated to all those who've always thought they weren't attractive/beautiful enough in one way or another.

"
You And Me

Take a look in the mirror
I know you don't like what you see
But can't you see your beauty deep within
That shines above it all

Never let your spirit wither
Though they may laugh at you and me
But I swear I'll wipe away all the tears you cried
And I'll catch you every time you fall

And I know how you feel, like you won't be the one
The special someone we're all looking for
I know you feel so alone, like there's nowhere to run
And like you'll stay this way forevermore

But don't you know how special you are to me
So just ignore everything they say
Stay here with me now, can't you see what I see?
Take my hand, together we'll find our way

Deep within your heart you shine
Brighter than the moon or the sun
This is beauty redefined
Don't you know you're the one
And don't you know you're better than all of them
Like the stars shining over the distant lands
And I just know how this will end
So I'm proud to call you my friend

Take a look all around you
I know you don't like what they do
But can't you feel that I'm always there
No matter what will come

What if I'd never found you?
Will you still be the same one I always knew?
And I know you're searching for acceptance somewhere
As we watch the rising sun

And don't you know that I'm real, and all this is true
It doesn't matter what they say
And I know you're the one, so let's start anew
'Cause with you I treasure every single day

Deep within your heart you shine
Brighter than the moon or the sun
This is beauty redefined
Don't you know you're the one
And don't you know you're better than all of them
Like the stars shining over the distant lands
And I just know how this will end
So I'm proud to call you my friend

And I know how it feels, like the world's against you
And all the hurtful things they say
But I don't wanna miss a single moment with you
'Cause you're so precious to me anyway

And I know you think you're never good enough
But I know you're good enough for me
So I'll hold you close, though the times may get tough
But we'll make it out someday, you and me

Deep within your heart you shine
Brighter than the moon or the sun
This is beauty redefined
Don't you know you're the one
And don't you know you're better than all of them
Like the stars shining over the distant lands
And I just know how this will end
So I'm proud to call you my friend

This is something I needed to read, because there are times when I look in the mirror and don't feel to good about myself. Even though this was written a few years back, its still relevant today...... a great and encouraging poem too.

You're the one guy who isn't.

There were a few moment where the rhyming was a little forced, and even where there seemed to be no rhyme at all, but other than that, this is a very sweet poem. I like that you repeated the stanza beginning "Deep within your heart". This made it sound like a song.

It's a sentiment most young people feel, that they aren't beautiful or worthy. It's nice to see someone addressing that in a poem, love of self and everyone rather than romantic love. Also nice to see someone addressing the stereotype that men are shallow and superficial. Nice write.

This is so beautiful! Made me cry. I really wish more guys thought like this, and girls, too.

My most favorite parts:

"And don't you know that I'm real, and all this is true
It doesn't matter what they say
And I know you're the one, so let's start anew
'Cause with you I treasure every single day"

"And I know you think you're never good enough
But I know you're good enough for me
So I'll hold you close, though the times may get tough
But we'll make it out someday, you and me"

Thank you so much for sharing this amazing poem!
