They told me to be pretty.
So I tried to be pretty.
They told me to stop trying so hard,
I shouldn't care about my looks.

They told me I was nerdy.
So I slacked in my schoolwork.
They told me I was a failure,
I had so much potential.

They told me to be skinny.
So I tried to be skinny.
They told me I was a freak,
I shouldn't be such an attention w****.

They told me to be outgoing.
So I tried to talk out more.
They told me to shut up,
No one cared what I had to say.

They told me to be myself.
Do you see why I have a problem with that?
