It boils in my blood
And trickles through my veins
The anger building up inside
Is making me insane
I look like I'm content
When I really want to scream
I'm at war with myself
It even haunts me in my dreams
The longing for perfection
That I will never be
It eats away inside me
Although it doesn't seem
My hair isn't long enough
My stomach is not flat
My grades aren't good enough
And yet it's only me that realizes that
Sometimes I wish that others will see
I'm not comfortable with being just me
