Skinny is the dream

It's the goal isn't it?

You won't be happy unless you're skinny, unless you're a clone

Boys won't give you the time of day

You won't be the first in line for a

But you know what?

You're you, and that is better than any clone out there

You are different

You are special

And no one can copy that, no one can take that away from you

Yea there's a number on the scale

However I don't see why that has to define you

People worry about image, but no one seems to care about the personality part

And that is what is wrong with people

It's something like that that starts the self-hate

Once it starts, it doesn't stop

You will feel ugly around people, you will stop eating to look like the other other girls, and you will harm yourself out of self-loathing

But there is someone out there who loves you just the way you are

There is someone out there who sees you for your true beauty 

Someone who wants to see your smile

And if you don't have that someone, I'll be your someone

You are original, don't ever feel bad about it

So as just another teenager, I'd like to say to you....

F*ck skinny

Skinny is not a definition, it is an adjective

No one is skinny

Everyone weighs a different amount of pounds, everyone is a different shape, everyone is a different size, nobody is skinny

Skinny isn't real, so don't revolve your life around an imaginary term.
