"You can't be pretty,
Without being skinny."

That's what they say,
So I start dieting,
And starving myself,
To follow their way.

"You have a disorder,
If you look too skinny."

So that's what I do,
I start to gain,
But it doesn't feel the same,
How much do I even weigh?

"You need to cover up,
If you still don't wear make-up."

I start to wear make-up,
But I don't feel pretty,
I feel like I'm suffocating,
My mom takes pity.

"Don't cover up too much,
You'll look like a slut."

I stop wearing make-up,
They want everything,
Instead of messing people up,
Why can't they chose something.

"Don't you dare cry,
Hold it in with a sigh."

I dry my tears,
I can't show my fears,
But I'm scared,
What if no one cares?

"But you can let emotions show,
So people can love you more."

My insides start to hurt,
My heart is about to burst,
I'm so confused,
What do I do?

"You want to be perfect?
We'll show you how to work it."

They lied.
They messed with my head,
Causing me to hate and be hated,
For me, it's too late
I'm already one of the dead.

We're all perfect,
In different ways,
Don't listen to what they say,
Don't end up like me,
Be who you want to be,
Because fuck society.
We are all unique, we don't need other peoples' opinons to feel good about ourselves. :hug:
I'm not trying to blame society for everything but I know that a lot of people will try to match what society says to get noticed. Plus this is from my view of society and I can put my own opinon. So please don't hate on me for writing this :(
If you miss it, the main message is the last paragraph of the poem...

I love this so much, it seems like society wants us to be perfect in every way. I get made fun of at school, because I don't look like a plastic barbie. I am also a tomboy and a feminest, so people automatically asume I am a lesbian.
here are some other things that society thinks:
Religious people= Evil, stupid, and ignorant (I am a a Christian and people have called me that)
Atheist= you'll probably get bullied, or discriminated against
Tomboy= lesbian, ugly
Feminists= angry, lesbian, ugly
Woman who does'nt want kids= YOUR HITLER1111!!! GO DIII111!!!
Skinny boys= gay
Intelligence= you will also get bullied for that.
Interest= support
Skinny= anorexia
healthy weigh (not to fat not to skinny)= fat, ugly
If you look like a Barbie= you are fuckin perfect, never change
These are just some of the things wrong with society.

Society is the socialism of life, it dictates what you do and who you like... Fuck society and live your own life.

there is no such thing as true perfection.

In my country we have a saying that goes: Nije se rodio tko je narodu ugodio.
Meaning: No one was born to please other people.
