Pieces of You..

~Jewel~

She's an ugly girl, does it make you want to kill her?

She's an ugly girl, do you want to kick in her face?

She's an ugly girl, she doesn't pose a threat.

She's an ugly girl, does she make you feel safe?

Ugly girl, ugly girl, do you hate her
'Cause she's pieces of you?

She's a pretty girl, does she make you think nasty thoughts?
She's a pretty girl, do you want to tie her down?
She's a pretty girl, do you call her a bitch?

She's a pretty girl, did she sleep with your whole town?

Pretty girl, pretty girl, do you hate her 'Cause she's pieces of you?

You say he's a faggot, does it make you want to hurt him?
You say he's a faggot, do you want to bash in his brain?

You say he's a faggot, does he make you sick to our stomach?

You say he's a faggot, are you afraid you're just the same?

Faggot, Faggot, do you hate him 'Cause he's pieces of you?
You say he's a Jew, does it mean that he's tight?
You say he's a Jew, do you want to hurt his kids tonight?

You say he's a Jew, he'll never wear that funny hat again.
You say he's a Jew, as though being born were a sin.

Oh Jew, oh Jew, do you hate him
'Cause he's pieces of you?


One of my favorite songs. Haven't you wondered how come there are certain traits that we are quick to judge on? It's because we see something easily recognizable. Something that might in one way or another be ... pieces of us.

And there's this forwarded email on "envy"-a popular post in social sites' bulletin boards, which I find so true.

You are jealous of someone because you've always wanted to be just like that someone. Or other people may envy you coz they've always dreamt of having what you have, living the life you live, being loved by those same people who adore you, or just simply seeing your face in the mirror instead of theirs. That's envy to a pathetic extent but it exists. Even I wish to be somebody else... sometimes... and that makes me pathetic too. Hehehe

In a world of imperfections, it pays to love yourself. Work on your faults not others'.
