Scars to Your Beautiful Alessia Scars

She just wants to be beautiful

She goes unnoticed, she knows no limits,

She craves attention, she praises an image,

She prays to be sculpted by the sculptor

Oh she don't see the light that's shining

Deeper than the eyes can find it

Maybe we have made her blind

So she tries to cover up her pain, and cut her woes away

'Cause covergirls don't cry after their face is made

But there's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark

You should know you're beautiful just the way you are

And you don't have to change a thing

The world could change its heart

No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

Oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh

And you don't have to change a thing

The world could change its heart

No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

She has dreams to be an envy, so she's starving

You know, "Cover-girls eat nothing."

She says, "Beauty is pain and there's beauty in everything."

"What's a little bit of hunger?"

"I could go a little while loner, " she fades away

She don't see her perfect, she don't understand she's worth it

Or that beauty goes deeper than the surface

Ah oh, ah ah oh,

So to all the girls that's hurting

Let me be your mirror, help you see a little bit clearer

The light that shines within

There's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark

You should know you're beautiful just the way you are

And you don't have to change a thing

The world could change its heart

No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

Oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

And you don't have to change a thing

The world could change its heart

No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

No better you than the you that you are

(no better you than the you that you are)

No better life than the life we're living

(no better life than the life we're living)

No better time for your shine, you're a star

(no better time for your shine, you're a star)

Oh, you're beautiful, oh, you're beautiful

There's a hope that's waiting for you in the dark

You should know you're beautiful just the way you are

And you don't have to change a thing

The world could change its heart

No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

Whoa-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, oh-oh-oh-oh

And you don't have to change a thing

The world could change its heart

No scars to your beautiful, we're stars and we're beautiful

The world can change their heart ( hyperbole- The world can not actually change its heart because the world doesn't have a heart.)

The authors purpose for this song is to show that everyone can be who they want to be without people holding them back and they can express them self.

Mercy Shawn Mendes

You've got a hold of me

Don't even know your power

I stand a hundred feet

But I fall when I'm around you

Show me an open door

Then you go and slam it on me

I can't take anymore

I'm saying baby

Please have mercy on me

Take it easy on my heart

Even though you don't mean to hurt me

You keep tearing me apart

Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

I'd drive through the night

Just to be near you, baby

Heart old and testified

Tell me that I'm not crazy

I'm not asking for a lot

Just that you're honest with me

My pride is all I got

I'm saying baby

Please have mercy on me

Take it easy on my heart

Even though you don't mean to hurt me

You keep tearing me apart

Would you please have mercy on me

I'm a puppet on your string

And even though you got good intentions

I need you to set me free

Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

Would you please have mercy, mercy on my heart

Consuming all the air inside my lungs

Ripping all the skin from off my bones

I'm prepared to sacrifice my life

I would gladly do it twice

Consuming all the air inside my lungs

Ripping all the skin from off my bones

I'm prepared to sacrifice my life

I would gladly do it twice

Please have mercy on me

Take it easy on my heart

Even though you don't mean to hurt me

You keep tearing me apart

Would you please have mercy on me

I'm a puppet on your string

And even though you got good intentions

I need you to set me free

I'm begging you for mercy, mercy

Begging you, begging you, please, baby

I'm begging you for mercy, mercy

Ooh, I'm begging you, I'm begging you

I'm a puppet on a string (Metaphor- He is comparing himself to a puppet on strings without using like or as.)

The authors purpose for writing this song is to show that he needs mercy because he loves this girl but she is hurting him for many reasons that he does not say.

My Lovely Puppy Katie Taylor

My lovely Puppy's name is Sammi

I said we should have named her Tammy

She has 2 big floppy ears

We have had her for 3 years

She eats everything she sees

Her favorite is definitely cheese

My lovely puppy is a Chihuahua

Even though she isn't as skinny as a straw

I still love her more than anything

We treat her like a king

She can not jump high

But she sure does try

This is my lovely puppy.

Even though she is not as skinny as a straw (simile- I was comparing the fact that she is not as skinny as a straw.)

The authors purpose for this poem is to show the love for her dog even though she is not perfect to everyone else.
