Insecurity filled the teenager

With agony, pain and woe.

This emptiness will take her

To a place where happiness is low.

Heavyset is how they described her

So she focused on losing weight.

Her reason for living became unsure

Now she's down to one-oh-eight.

Bullying became an everyday threat

And sadness came as often as the sun;

How was she to overcome this fret

When nothing but harm had been done?

       Stand tall, be proud, don't go too far.

       Don't fall, sing loud, be who you are.
