Thanks, Society

Thanks for destroying my confidence

Thanks for being this mighty

giant, giving my negative self-image credence

Thanks for not allowing me to

eat without wanting to throw up

Thanks for making me permanently blue

Thanks for making beautiful mean make up

slathered on

The only way to feel, to get noticed is to cut

You shove models' tiny waists and big

boobs in my face. Because of you I always suck in my gut

The only way to find something positive about me, I have to dig

You push alcohol and drugs

to little kids. You make young girls give up their virtue

You put heavy jugs

of constant worry and self-loathing onto shoulders undue

You drive us to strive for popularity

To not just accept ourselves

To follow you blindly

Thanks, Society
