Unique (A Message For The Women)

Mirror on the wall
 why are you taking
 up her time?,
 You got her in the mirror,
 putting make-up on her mind,
but putting on that make-up
 only wastes precious time,
 cause it's not about her face,
 It's more about what's in her mind,
 but our sad shallow world,
 has her working overtime,
30 minutes to an hour,
 so she can try to find perfection,
 but only if she knew,
 there's little need for correction,

 And it's sadder
 that beauty companies
 are rich because of this,
 girls with low self esteem
 spending millions to achieve,
To achieve a look
 that they already possess,
 but it's society's fault
 that there's so much stress,

 Cause it makes them think
 that they need make-up to
  but the truth is,
 It's only used to deceive,
 cause it's a temporary fix,
 inside they will still bleed,  

 The world can be
 so superficial at times,
 That's the main reason
 they're trying to make
 us all blind,

 By making us think
 that beauty
 is all that really matters,
 but it's the true confidence inside,
 which make-up only shatters,

  Putting make-up on,
 only makes you like the other,

 Without the make-up on,
 you will stand out like a star,
 So don't worry girl
 you're beautiful just the way you are,

And you should not care
 what those shallow people think,
 cause if you try
 to impress them,
 then you're missing out
 on the deep,

you're already beautiful,
 smart, and complete,
 but without the make-up on,
 you can say that
 you're unique
