This page is dedicated to all the souls out there who just because they dont look like the rest of the human race - have to contend with more than many of us have to deal with. Most of us let the physical side of our appearance
dictate to us the happiness we should be feeling.
We've all done it..>>>eg too short....too tall...too fat...too skinny.......nose is too big...too small ...too flat... too black...too white....too ugly...too>>>
The next time you look at yourself in the mirror and dont like what you see spare a thought for others out there who have never had the choice to change about the physical what cant be changed and realise just how lucky you are
Joseph Carey Merrick
"The Elephant Man"
1862 - 1890
The mirror it lies. It never shows...The mirror it lies..it shows only me...The mirror it lies..Why cant you see...The mirror it lies...Please please see me...The mirror it lies..See the beauty in me.....The mirror it lies.Why dont you just see...The mirror it lies....It deceives your eyes. The mirror it lies.... it just cant see....The mirror it lies....show the beauty in me....The mirror it shows....Your eyes just dont see...The mirror it shows....The beauty of me. The mirror it shows....Your eyes are closed....The mirror it shows....My eyes just dont see.....The mirror it shows....The beauty of me.. the mirror I see is not reality
"I AM NOT AN ANIMAL!!!
I AM A MAN!"
