"Why don't I look like that doll?"

"Why don't I look like that doll?" I asked, gazing at my body "Why am I ugly, why am I not tall?" "Why can't I have somebody?"

My mom entered the room

"You may not look like that shiny thing...

"You may not look like that shiny thing... But you have always been pretty.

"You may not look like that shiny thing... But you have always been pretty. For the right ones, you are their everything.

"You may not look like that shiny thing... But you have always been pretty. For the right ones, you are their everything. Stop crying, my love. You are a beauty."

Twenty two years old Smiled as I walked down the red-colored floor Wearing a shiny thing on my neck My mom smiled, as I graduated with flying colors

I realized, as I stand on the stage

I realized, as I stand on the stage That I still don't look like that doll

I realized, as I stand on the stage That I still don't look like that doll

I realized, as I stand on the stage That I still don't look like that doll

But seeing all the positive changes

It no longer bothers me at all
