Is that a mermaid or a butterfly

I lay under the sun ~
with a tail that i fling ~
and wings ~ Yes wings GIANT luminous wings ~
That can take me gliding wherever my whim ~
I am mermaid and butterfly ~
Im what I want to be ~
When I lay under the sun ~ In my skin ~

Can you see All of me ~
Im so beautiful don't you think ~
In my mermaid tail and butterfly wings ~
Most would say Im rather unique ~
But its not for this that You seek ~
I understand that you are weak ~
that you admire beauty that's not skin deep ~

Yes Yes I know and there is no denying this is so ~
for beautiful is the skin ~
But don't you think you've been ripped off ~
Being conditioned just to think ~
that beauty is the outer skin ~

If you would just take the time to look within ~
and see me internally ~
not just externally ~
I might let you in on the tale ~
like my wings they're not real ~
this is all just surreal ~
to get you thinking ~
for once ~
past ~
your ~
own ~
beautiful ~
skin
