Girl of sixteen years, and a problem she has got
Boys at school were rating girls, and one said she wasn't hot
At home inside the bathroom, she looked at her face in the mirror
and grabbed the lotions and the creams just to make her pale skin clearer
The magazines showed all the models that were skinny and much thinner
So she went up to the toilet and threw up all her dinner
Stepping on the scale, she always checks up her weight
Looking in the mirror and always seeing what she hates
Her figure is frail and thin, but her head is full of lies
that she was still just way too fat, no matter how hard that she tries
She always used excuses that she "ate before she came"
or that "I'm not too hungry", "I don't eat that" is what she claims
Her friends would always worry because she never ate
But she never showed her weakness, always saying that she's great
But inside, she was dying, her secret kept away
Her dark eyes filled with sorrow as she hides it every day
She always wastes her money on the cosmetics and the make up
But one day her younger brother told her she needs to wake up
he said "Big sis, you are beautiful, just the way you are
I always see you throwing up and eating the health bars
I don't like to see you like this because it hurts so bad to see
that you are never happy, and your hurt is hurting me
Stop painting your pretty face with the black and purple stuff
and please stop running for miles after school till you are well enough
The models and the magazines are fake and all the same
Stop trying to be someone else, the media's to blame.
I want my older sister back, I really truly do,
Why do you want to be someone else when there's only one of you?"
this is why i dont write poetry
for my friend who has the same problem :)
