I'd be pretty if I'd just smile
If I'd cut my hair a certain way
And cover myself up in that chemical crap you call make-up
But did you ever think that just maybe...
I don't wanna be pretty
That I just wanna be me
Who cares if no one ever calls me beautiful
Who cares if I'm never asked to dance
Hell I don't even know how to dance anyway
I don't care how the world sees me
I only care how I see me
And I think there's nothing wrong with the girl in the mirror
Sure she doesn't smile much but that's cause she's going through hell
Her face may look plain without any make-up
But that's just the way I like it
An old pair of jeans
The first t-shirt could find
My hair in a braid
I'm ready to go
To where no one cares just what I look like
Least of all me
It's a barn full of horses
That's where I choose to spend my days
Where no one cares about what I wear
Where I never have to hear "I'd be pretty if I'd just..."

:thumbsup: I like it! I never cared much about make up or clothes, either. I'll get dolled up if it's really important, but for day-to-day living? Forget it.

These kinds of people are 'prettier' (though beauty isn't absolute) than the kind of people who care about superficial stuff like make-up, I'd say.

Awh, wow wonderful spoken.
It indeed shouldn't matter how a person looks like.
Real beauty is always on the inside of someone not on the outside.
There is nothing wrong with not wearing make-up. The thing what is left without it is called natural beauty.

This is me in completion. Pretty much. Minus the "hair in a braid" and horses. But other than that, it's me.

Also, you are beautiful just the way you are.
