The 21st century- a time of technology and innovation
But what good is this with unhappy people around the nation?
Body image and mind are sparesely accepted
Nobody wants to feel rejected
"Homosexuality is a sin!"
"You are only beautiful if you are thin."
"Mental illness? Is this a joke?"
The walls are caving in; I might just choke.
High school is a drag- hormonal teens ready to explode
With bearing the weight of this gargantuan load
We are Atlas- you know that guy
The one who held the Earth on his shoulders, stuck in the sky
And that is how we feel- heavy and hollow
So we feign the appearance to seem perfect and shallow
That is not how I want the world to be
I want it to be true, to be beautiful, to be free.
