Right now while you’re staring at this screen there’s a girl out there
A boy out there
And they are looking in the mirror and screaming so loud you can’t hear them
They stand so fragile in front of the mirror who shows what only you can see and they criticize and point out every flaw they think they see and then later they’ll skip a meal or scrub their face to hard and they’ll cry and when you go to school tomorrow they’ll expect a compliment
But you won’t. You’re going to sit in your chair and your classmates are dying and you are so oblivious because it doesn’t involve you
Welcome to America
You are beautiful as long as you are beautiful enough to be seen and if you want to be noticed your teeth better shine so bright and your hair so smooth. Your bones protrude and your hips curve too and it’s okay to already be this way but to go from who you are to who you think they want you to be is a crazy master minded plan we couldn’t have dreamed and we will all complain about this. We don’t want this
When did you step up?
But I can’t get mad
I’ve suffered the sin of wanting my pants a smaller size and my pores smaller and my eyes more wide and it doesn’t help when the people in this world love to point out the parts of you they don’t call perfectly fine and so it’s a cycle of us complaining and changing
We want society to change and we want to be accepted
Society can’t change as long as you’re caving in and if you want to be accepted learn to love your skin.
It’s going to be okay. You’re born you for a reason. Hold yourself in the moment that if we went back in time and we played your life you wouldn’t be you because it was a one in a million chance that you got conceived and that should be enough to make you feel good about you and so smile and calm down. Life is to short to wallow in the bad times when the future’s in our hands and the good times are just ahead.
