- What Matters
It’s hard to be yourself, when you hate yourself.
You look on TV and everyone is perfect and thin.
Their hair is shinny and smooth and mine is frizzy and wild.
Cute, small noses that center their face and mine is round and broken.
It’s hard to look in the mirror everyday and see someone you can’t stand.
When I put on pants and I see my stomach hang over the edge,
I think why can’t I be skinny like everyone else.
I barley eat and I exercise 24/7 but,it doesn’t matter.
All Victoria secret models have this nice skin,
And I have red bumps from my skin disease.
All the boys I have ever liked are in relationships with all these pretty and skinny girls,
and it makes me feel like a loser.
I dread getting ready for school because I don’t want anyone to see me.
I want to hide in my room in the dark forever, so I won’t have to see anyone.
Each day is a new challenge and I haven’t won any yet.
You can run away from the TV screen and the magazines,
But you can’t run away from yourself.
