She walks with her head held high
Never letting out a single cry
No one knows her heart aches with density
Her reflection is her worst enemy

Never letting out a single cry
She looks to God for a reply
Her reflection is her worst enemy
Her frame a mental felony

She looks to God for a reply
A cowardly fabricated disguise
Her frame a mental felony
In a constant search for a remedy

A cowardly fabricated disguise
The light lost in her eyes
In a constant search for a remedy
She walks with her head held high


The author's comments:

A gril is struggling with body image. She has been stuck in her own head, keeping anyone from knowing her true self. She can't even look in the mirror without the constant thought of shedding a tear. She prays to God to make her wish of having a diffrent body come true, but he doesn't reply.
