"happy" is purchased in the makeup section

straining to obtain perfection,

taught to sacrifice for a slim waist

appetites painfully being erased.

I wonder why

to eating disorders is where girls comply?

 

shamed for their tears

told to bench press away your fears

help is the last thing to seek

because pain equals weak.

I wonder why

boys suicide rates are so high?
