Skin Deep

God (Inspired by)

He uses you for
what you can do
with your mouth,
but he doesn’t care
what you have to say.

I know you feel
like you’re just
a hollowed-out body
and no man will bother
to hear your heart.

Pretty girl,
don’t believe
that ugly myth;
you’re worth so much
more than that.

There’s a man out there
that knows your soul
and thinks it’s
even more beautiful
than the exterior.

After all,
He created you
from the inside out;
He loves you for
all that you are.
