"Curls" Posts

I thought I was beautiful
No one could tell me different
Hair to face to weight to skin color
But after meeting that man
I slowly saw ugliness
Word by word and action by action

I cut my hair to throw away
All of my bad memories
But as I look in the mirror
I don't recognize myself

I'm not the girl who wears short hair
Or thinks she's not attractive
I'm the woman he trapped in this body
And I'll break free by loving it as me

No, no, no, no, no, no
No, no, no

You're beautiful, both inside and out
Hair to face to weight to skin color
Let's have some fun! Let's get makeovers
I can finally look like myself

Don't get me wrong! I love every curl
I'd be just as beautiful without straightening them
But who I am has long brunette hair
Every curl unrolled... not afraid of being pulled

I'm not the girl who wears short hair
Or thinks she's not attractive
I'm the woman he trapped in this body
And I'll break free by loving it as me

Silk press these curls
Do my makeup and nails
Fill this wardrobe that's empty
Wash shame away
My scars are beauty marks
I'll wear my past, present, and future

Mirror, mirror, on the wall
Who's beautiful? Flaws and all
Ah, my true self. I missed you
Now that you're back, let's do this
