"Life isn't about finding yourself. It is about creating yourself."

If you look into a mirror and see,
Your reflection broken into pieces of three.
And you feel that there is no other way,
Than to starve yourself, clasp your hands and pray.
To make all of the pain,
Go away.

But you’re perfect,
And you’re worth it,
You mean everything to me.
I would run, jump, swim, and climb,
All you gotta do is scream.
If only you opened your eyes and could see,
You’re not the one with the problem.
The problem is society.
The problem is society.


As the blood flows out of your veins,
You wonder what’s brought on this change
Hearing words that can really kill.
You fall to floor covered in pills,
But once, upon a while ago.
You were happy and now won’t say hello.


But you’re perfect,
And you’re worth it,
You mean everything to me.
I would run, jump, swim, and climb,
All you gotta do is scream.
If only you opened your eyes and could see,
You’re not the one with the problem.
The problem is society.
The problem is society.


Don’t let anybody get you down.
Because karma exists,
And what goes around,
Comes around.

But you’re perfect,
And you’re worth it,
You mean everything to me.
I would run, jump, swim, and climb,
All you gotta do is scream.
If only you opened your eyes and could see,
You’re not the one with the problem.
The problem is society.
The problem is society.

But you’re perfect,
And you’re worth it,
You mean everything to me.
I would run, jump, swim, and climb,
All you gotta do is scream.
If only you opened your eyes and could see,
You’re not the one with the problem.
The problem is society.
The problem is society.

So live life and all your dreams.


The author's comments:
Recently, some of my classmates have had to have a range of treatments for cutting, suicidal thoughts/attempts, and eating disorders. And even more of my classmates have had to break a promise to a friend in order to tell an adult and save their friend's life. I wrote these lyrics because I wanted every person on this earth to know that there is nothing bad enough for you to have to resort to hurting yourself. That there will always be somebody, watching out for you. Being there. I am currently working on making music for the lyrics, and hope to create a full song. I hope that people see that they aren't alone, and that they do live up to standards. You are perfect, and don't have to be Barbie do be so. Society is the one with the crazy ideas on weight, looks, smarts, and beauty. But you are the one that is truly incredibly amazing.
