You say I lie I clearly can't remember

Everyone forgets about me in December

Friends quickly turn into enemies toward me

No one seems to be talking about anything but me

In a cruel way nothing but hidden laughs

Starring in a cracked mirror frowning at my calves

Magazines and tv everywhere it's thrown at me

If only they could see what I see

I preferred recess resting my head on the field alone

Watching the athletes run along flaunting their toned figures

Not a single muscle lies on my finger

I gaze in awe yet jealous gloom of what could've been

Instead of being so focused on being thin
