My greatest hope and wish is to be beautiful
In the eyes of others,
But moreso, in my own.
I want to stand naked in front of the mirror
And love what I see
And let someone else love it too
Afraid of what people see when they look at me.
I see an ogre.(3:33)
Large, and hideous.
People don't often want to be around ogres
Or fall in love with them
Or share a meal with them.
All they can think is "Oh, an Ogre."
It's a scary thought, being an ogre.
People prefer the princess.
Or at least the sinister temptress.
I want to turn heads
And be accepted as a beauty.
Author's Note: Thank you to Conan O'Brien and his writers for a funny skit that I stole their title from. I couldn't help it.
