I see you standing there all alone
Staring at all the girls passing by 
Why do you want be a clone
All it does is make you cry

You're constantly aiming higher 
Comparing yourself to models 
You should know society is a liar
You're practically living off pill bottles 

What you want isn't real
But you're so blinded by mainstream
That you skip every meal
For an illusion of a fake dream

One day you'll wake up and see
That what you think you need 
Isn't really what you should be
What you're doing will not make you succeed 

You're not the ugly one
Humanity is just a nasty goblin
I can't stand watching what you've done
Starving yourself to your coffin

I really loved this poem and I know someone who is going through this. It is horrible to see what they are comparing themselves to and what they are doing to themselves. Thankyou for ths poem.

My pen is the barrel of a gun. Remind me which side you should be on.
