Beautiful

You show me a picture of a size 3 model
And you tell me she is beautiful
Next you show me a size 2 model
Then you say she is more beautiful
You show me so many things that are all the same
And you tell me they are beautiful
Now I see a ten year old dead, but she weighed 47 pounds
So go on and tell me that is beautiful
I see a girl who’s already a size 6 purging herself
Now go on and tell me that’s beautiful
I see girls with slit wrist and depressed faces
Go on and tell me that’s beautiful
Now I see a pregnant 13 year old who did it because he called her pretty
Tell me that’s beautiful
Then I see a woman who is smart and successful but doesn’t wear your make up
So you tell me she is not beautiful
I see a girl with an ounce of self-respect left
And you tell me she is not beautiful
Well if that’s what it takes
Then I want to tell you I don’t want to be beautiful
