Tell me when exactly it started. Where a size 0 defined true beauty, where starvation and a thigh gap made men turn and look at you. Where 6 packs and muscles defend a real man. For those who are outcasted. Tell me when did we become based off of numbers, where if you don't have papers you don't belong. Where school isnt about learning it's only about passing. Where you spend most of your life to earn a paper and a handshake.


Why can't the world see true beauty, that what makes a man is one who would stay through everything. Where everyone is trying to fight and make it through this living.


What happened to little girls playing with barbies now they are trying to look like her. what happened to those values and respect that we use to know.


We try to fight this world. The world that we call home.
