Girls are called fat if they eat and gain weight,
But if they stop eating they are called anorexic.
Either way they are judged by what is on their plate.
When they wear makeup they are called fake,
But all of their lives they are taught that they should.
There shouldn't be a difference in what path they choose to take.
They never feel like they belong
With society constantly telling them they aren't doing anything right
But when they end their lives, society is the first to ask, "What went wrong?"
