when she was younger-

ugly pale too pale

she had her character; and that was enough

and she grew up-

beautiful tan

not/so/plain/anymore

the mirror said

"the fairest of them all"

"no" she said, like a question

and since she had

had/was/is

been so ugly

she won't change

she makes herself so ugly (full circle)

-ugly always been easier than pretty-

and she forgets she was

ever beautiful
