Society calls


United States

Welcome to society,

where they teach you to love yourself,

but not to much and limit yourself,

they teach you that size is but a number,

but call you fat the next day,

They make you cry,

And ask why,

They tell you that all love it okay,

but cant tolerate the gay,

They drown you with pain,

for their very own game,

They tell you "you gotta build yourself",

but later say to kill yourself,

And later the next day...

They cant live with themselves because you killed yourself
