"Everything is blue" - Halsey


I look in the mirror.
But do I like what I see?
Of course I do not.
I would change it all if I could.
But why?
Because, society.
Your face is not clear.
Your face is too wide.
Skinny? yes.
But not skinny enough.
Okay.
But you do not look like her.
Your boobs aren’t big.
What is a pretty face?
Photo shopped supermodels?
I don’t give a damn.
F*** social media.
Screw starving.
Screw fake models.
I
Am
me.
