She grabs a magazine and looks inside
All these "perfect women" fill the contents
A false reality seen with her eyes
Comparing herself to literal nonsense
The flawless faces photoshopped to perfection
Not a pore or blemish in sight
The pressure leads her to self inspection
She cries herself to sleep at night
Is it her fault? Or is it the body ideal?
The media makes her loathe herself
This "body ideal" is simply unreal
Examining photoshopped curves is not good for her health
She doesn't feel beautiful anymore
The media is her mirror
She feels like a girl nobody can adore
The girl in the magazine's skin is clearer
Is this self loathe really her fault?
Or is it the superficial eye of the fashion critics?
This scrutinizing eye should be brought to a halt.
If nothing changes, her self esteem is finished.
