The Sob Story of the Girl

December 19, 2008
By Shelby Colby, Rochester, NH

“I’m going on a diet. I’m so fat!”
Why would a girl ever want to think that?
Eating disorders in every corner of the world,
Because we’re sure that no one really likes a fat girl.
Let’s put on our tight jeans and low-cut shirts
And giggle when the boys around us act like jerks.
We have to look sexy; it’s an unwritten rule.
We show the world our bodies, but not our brains, or we're not cool.
We’re all getting pregnant before we grow up,
Going to parties and getting drunk until we throw up.
In this day and age, being a girl sucks,
But no one can change it; I guess we’re out of luck.
