395 (who?)
"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...

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.

Thank you for writing that piece of truth. I am glad to read, that here on earth still live people, who can see what society does to us. We all are covered with superficiality - if anyone does not do that was erveryone does he is weird or needs to visit a mental house "to be cured".

It is sad, that we are not able to live as individuals but the most paradoxical is that everyone demands his individuality. We should know, that we all are individuals and should have rights to live like that. But we cannot.

Poor humanity.
