Nobody Looks On The Outside

What is the meaning of telling me I am beautiful, if all you see is the outside? 

People do not buy houses strictly because of what the outside entails.

People do not shop in certain stores because of what the outside looks like. 

Why should I look at you with stars in my eyes, if the only thing that you see, 

is my outside? 

Theres more to me than the way the sun shines on my hair, 

or the way my mouth forms the word "Oh".

There's more to me than the way you imagine that I could preform the actions that cause you pleasure. 

I am a person with actual feelings, with actual interests. 

I am more than my body which I have grown to hate, 

I am more than the hair on my head, or the eyes in my sockets. 

I AM MORE THAN WHAT YOU NEED, I AM WHAT I NEED TO BE.
