I am really fat and hideous.
I wonder if I'll ever be skinny and beautiful.
I hear the critical voice of my mother as
I see skinny, beautiful girls pass by that aren't me.
I want to be just like those girls.
I am really fat and hideous.

I pretend to be a skinny beautiful girl.
I feel unwanted by all of the boys.
I touch my many "love handles" and
I worry that I will always be fat.
I cry when my jeans don't zip up and the mirror shows me my face
I am really fat and hideous.

I understand that beauty isn't everything and
I say that everyone is beautiful, but still
I dream of a skinny, beautiful me that I'll never be.
I try not to think this way, but
I hope that one day I'll be comfortable in my own body.
I am really fat and hideous
