Beauty is skin and bones

Wearing makeup to make you beautiful

Sexy is abs and tan skin.

The skeleton of society.


Bulletin boards

T.V. shows

This has changed thoughts

Has changed minds.

The skeleton of society.

Why is it bad to be ourselves?

To be curvy

To be short

To be tall

To be covered in tattoos

The skeleton of society

Has told us no.

Even though it changes

Tells us we are beautiful

Many change

Many turn to listen to the old.

To the skeleton of society.

Turning the healthy bodies

Into something they’re not

Into frail bodies

Into weak souls

The skeleton of society.

When will this change

Like the people who change




For the skeleton of society.

With hope it will




Change the skeleton.

The skeleton of society.

Change it into something.

Something beautiful

Not a skeleton

So it will no longer be

The skeleton of society.
