Who did this to you?
Who told you there’s nothing more to you than what’s skin-deep?
Your most inner self is the most beautiful.
don’t stress over keeping it in shadows.
If I took it out for you to see,
all the things you have taught me,
would you stay with me?
We could look at them together,
pour them out on the floor.
I’d tell you how and why
I love each one of them.
Please, don’t hide in the shadows.
Just the way you are has always been enough.
