how can we be happy
when the world is on our backs?
nagging us to change
until anxiety attacks

how can we be happy
with girls in fairy tales
portraying us as symbols
of purity and perfection?

no one cares to draw
a line to save our minds
they like to watch us fail
like to watch us fall behind

how can you accept
what everybody frowns?
we're not all Cinderellas with
glass slippers and white gowns
