Long, long ago,
or even today
In a place very close,
or so far away
Lived a girl named Anne
Who from birth was blind
Yet was always so gentle
And always so kind
She smiled at the sun
And beamed at the rain
She loved to help others
heal from their pain
But other girls hated
Anne who was kind
Since she was so pretty
But she didn't mind
These girls were so jealous
They started to whine
So those girls got together
And they started to lie
"Anne, you're so ugly
You're blind as a bat
How can you go on
Living like that?"
Day in and day out
That's what they'd say
Perhaps hoping her happiness
Would fade away
"Anne, you're so stupid
you're so uncool
You should just vanish
and flunk out of school
You'll never be like us
You'll never fit in
Cause you're just so ugly
There's no way you can win"
Then one day Anne sighed
and she turned around
Smiled brightly at the girls
trying to bring her down
"Maybe you're right
If you believe what you see
If I'm blind
Maybe that's me
You can all see
But you don't understand
I already know
just who I am
And I can see without sight
It's bright as day
That jealousy's making you
Talk this way
I don't mind if I'm ugly
Or if I am fair
Because what really matters
Beauty? It's not there
I may be blind
but I can still see
That you girls are the ones
who may be ugly
I won't call you that
I won't call you names
I don't wish to fit in
So we're all the same
I don't want to be 'cool'
I want to be kind
You are the opposite
Perhaps it's you who are blind
I feel sorry for you
Although I can't see your face
That your youth and your beauty
Is going to waste
You may be pretty
But it's not very smart
To make yourself ugly
Deep down in your heart"
The girls they just started
Their mouths opened wide
Perhaps they began
to understand inside
What matters is not
The beauty you see
But the beauty of knowing
Your originality
Anne walked away
A smile on her eyes
Hoping that someday
The world would realize
Everyone's different
So please don't be blind
See with your heart
And learn to be kind
Perhaps a little corny, but it's very true.
