The size of her body Society says it's not cute

Now she's looking in the mirror Not knowing what to do -

Maybe body slimmers , she thought..

That should do But why should she try to fit in even if she's a size two ?

 

Her nose is too big

Her pimples are noticeable

And her hair is dry All she wanted was someone to love her - Wipe the tears from her eyes

Make makeup, she said - that should do

"Your ugly" was the statement she began to believe was true

Maybe Im too dark She began to bleach her skin

Am I white enough now?

Will they finally let me in ?

Slimmed her waist

Beat her face

&' Colored her hair

Now, she feels as if she's no longer living in F E A R !
