She thinks herself hideous
That she's not the prettiest
She thinks herself a mess
Not much there to impress
He friends tell her she's beautiful
Such slanders against her looks are inexcusable

But how can she take believe
When the world tells her so differently?

Must be skinny like a rail
Must be tanned not pale
Wear cloths made for dolls so small
That's all you can find in a shopping mall
Know all the latest fashion and trends
In order to look pretty for the camera lens

Show that skin, bleach that hair
Or else they'll call you a square

Show off so much, cover so little
To not do this is irrefutable

Why, girls of grace and beauty
Do you find acting like this to be your duty?
Why, women of our time and age
Do you confine yourselves to their iron cage?

I say no more, let's crush the cycle
Let us be the generation that breaks
Their view on beauty

"Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight. For this is the way the holy women of the past who put their hope in God used to make themselves beautiful"
(1 Peter 3:3–5).

The last bit that was in quotes was, I looked up what God says about true beauty and decided to add it at the bottom of this.
