I still can't.

It doesn't make sense to call ourselves ugly.
because we don't really see ourselves.

We don't watch ourselves sleeping in bed.
curled up and silent
with chests rising and falling with our own rhythm.

We don't see ourselves reading a book
eyes fluttering and glowing.

You don't see yourself looking at someone
with care inside your heart.

There's no mirror in your way
when you're laughing and smiling
and happiness is leaking out of you

You would know exactly how bright and beautiful you are.
If you saw yourself in the moments where you are truly beautiful.
