Bouncing back

They just go on laughing at you
Using their little lies,
And then enjoy the moments when
Water gushes down your eyes.

They tell you that you aren’t good
You say, “Yes, I am not,”
They make you lie to yourself then
While they just lie a lot.

When you think you’re beautiful
They tell you that you’re wrong,
And everyday a mirror breaks
When you replay that petty song.

But you and I both are aware
There’s no reason to be low,
For you contain more beauty than
A mirror can ever show.

It’s their eyes that cannot behold
The diamonds that you’re worth,
And the change that you can make
as a diamond of this Earth.

No matter how long you’re trodden upon,
No matter you’re called wrong,
Every time they’ll put you down
You must bounce back strong!

    That’s, once again, impressively and stunningly strengthening, uplifting, inspiring. Exquisite. I hope I’d come across this encouraging literal beauty earlier.
