in his eyes

his voice is like silk and whiskey
so smooth and oh so heady
bass tones breaking through the walls
i’ve carefully built around me

and when he says the things
i desperately need to hear
that i’m beautiful and that i matter
suddenly there’s nothing to fear

i’ll believe him for as long as I can
for this girl needs a little help now and then
to remember just how strong she really is
in a world filled with boys and wicked men

so keep whispering in my ear
share the world that you see
so i can see it too and know
that some days it’s okay to simply be

strong and beautiful
sometimes vulnerable
perfectly imperfect and
in your eyes, unstoppable
