Not all girls have curvy body
Not all girls are tall
Not all girls are sexy slim
Most girls don’t have it all.
Not all girls are unruly but also
Not all girls are prim and proper
Not all girls like frilly things
Not all girls are makeup lovers.
Not all girls receive equal opportunity
Not all girls have their voices heard
But some girls are rising up now
And will not be deterred.
Just another way of saying ugly
As if it hurts less
Should one say “un-thin” then, to make it sound less negative?
If I starve myself will you be kinder?
If I starve myself will you be nicer?
Will you treat me better?
Will you be just a little sweeter?
If I starve myself to meet your standards,
Will you accept me with arms wide open afterwards?
So I starve myself and I begin to deteriorate
My starvation, it accelerates
I drown and become lost
I only paid for my life, it’s not much of a cost.
It’s not funny
I’m self conscious…all the time
I look at the mirror
Try to cheer myself up
Gain the confidence
But it gets depleted with each people who look at me funny.
The skinny can easily find clothes that fit
The heavy….well, we often struggle
My self esteem has left years ago
So I curl up on my bed
And hide in my room
And so I came to realize that people with smaller size, smaller frame
Gets the praise, popularity and fame
They always seem to win the game
Of one size fits all.
I never try an outfit where they can see, for fear of being shamed
And perhaps, fear of being maimed
They may not laugh at me but I’ll feel awful just the same
Such an awful feeling.
My confidence, I can never tame
I am just another fat suffering dame
I feel so lame
For wanting to be one of those with smaller frames
Shed those extra pounds
Let’s do it all again
You did it before
You can do it once more
Move your butt and feet
Get going and never admit defeat!
Go on, just lose it
Will I ever lose the pounds I gained?
I’m drifting to isolation again
Confidence gained is now confidence lost
And I have but myself to blame the most
Spare me the sweet talk and tell me straight
That I’ve once again gained weight
How much more do you want from me?
I have nothing left!
To be skin and bones
And skin and bones!
To you I am just the sheel that you see
I have nothing more
“You’re getting bigger”
Oh yes they say!
And all the bad memories rush, so severe
Made an awful day
And now I cry
Felt like I died
And on to die-eating again
Feeling like I failed once more
Shed those extra weight
Remove all self hate
Driving oneself to the distance
It takes a lot of hard work, give yourself a chance
Don’t give up now, you’ve come a long way
Show them what you’re made of now insead of waiting for someday
Sweat it out and enjoy yourself
I go on and tell this to myself
No one will do it for me
And so I go at it, in the end we shall see
