He said something to her
It accompanies her and she want to slit her throat
She sees all that was spoken over her
It is true, it reflecting back at her in her mirror
She believes it, she digests it and it lingers like a bad odour.
I wondered why she believed him
She replied, he was her father, her brother, her lover, a stranger
A stranger too?.. she smiled.. yeah a stranger
She’s bold, a lioness, a pillar to other girls but she’s also fragile
What shall I say to this beautiful piece of God’s handy work
That she’s enough, that she’s gold, apple of God’s eyes
How shall I break through the web of lies that she’s believed
How do i take a picture of her that she might look at herself again and smile… Lord teach me how to tell her she’s perfect…like You!!
