"The story of beauty" as written by Beyonce Knowles and Ken Fambro....
Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

It was a Saturday
This cold afternoon
Inside this house there lived
A frightened young girl
She didn't know what she should do
'Cause she missed her mother so
She was left home all alone
With her step father

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

He touched her places
That he shouldn't have touched
He did some things to her
That he shouldn't have done
So she ran into her room
Paged her mother 9 1 1
And the tragedy began
For this young girl

She told her mother
Her family, and friends
No one believed her
'Cause before this happened
She was filled with hate and anger
Towards her step father
'Cause he took her mother
From her when they married

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

She looked for her father
In the men that she saw
Thought that all she had to offer
Was her body
No one to figure out why
This young girl would live her life
In such pain and unhappiness
'Cause she was so beautiful

She rebelled and one day
The young girl fell in love
With another man like her stepdad
He abused her emotionally
And made her feel like she was worthless
Hope one day she realize
And see the beauty in her eyes
All she needs is prayer and strength
She's beautiful

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

Please dry your eyes, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
It's not your fault, young girl
Don't cry, you're beautiful
You're not the one to blame
Soon it will be okay
One day you'll realize
Your beauty

Don't hold your head down low
You've got so much, so much
So much, so much, so much to be proud of
You can still live your life
I promise you you'll survive
Girl I love you
You're beautiful

    General CommentWhat moves me most about this song is the artists' acknowledgment of these horrible things: what it feels like to be abused, beaten down, not supported by the people who are supposed to be there for you, continuing to spiral down because you lose your feelings of self-worth... So many people go through this, and they are silenced, because you never hear these songs on the radio. All you hear about are how to be hot enough to be wanted, how to get a guy/girl, your role as a pimp/ho (how you have to work HARD to be a pimp and how you have to be kept in line if you're a ho)... You don't hear about the pain of being abused this way. I love this song. It makes me so sad to hear it, but it is one of the realist songs out there. Thank you, Destiny's Child, for writing this.
