Lights on

Eyes open

Cold feet

Cold floor

 

Rushing water

And then a glimpse

Her reflection staring back

Time to put her face on

 

The pounding sponge

Blending of a brush

All to please them

All to live up to the standard

 

Beauty is like a label

Stuck on by peers

A label fought for

A pained label

 

Skip a meal--

You'll stay thinner

Dye your hair--

You'll be accepted

 

Don't be you

You is not beautiful

Meet their standards

Beauty is a label

 

Reject the lie

Peel off the label

Be YOU!
