Tainted with the disease of competition
Everyone must be better than the other - how it distorts our vision.
Endless ridicule from media, forcing impossible standards on the young teen.
None wise enough to see their true scheme.
As we stumble through this journey called life
Gaining unhealthy ideas we fall into our strife.
Evermore giving away our power to a man’s standards of “beauty“.
Genuine beauty locked behind a mirror and scale
If only we could remove this misleading veil
Reason will one day be taken down from it’s dusty shelf
Life will become more prosperous in it’s new health
Sanctuary lies in the confidence of one’s self

Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain.
