Mirror, mirror

Growing up with smiling faces
Tripping over untied laces
Laughing with a light in our 
eyes
When exactly did the innocence 
die
Staring at my reflection, I 
watch 
Judgment morphs my features, 
in shock
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Will you be happy when the 
numbers fall
Make up face, tiny waist
Not enough and dreams are 
chased
Insults whip from your 
venomous tongue
Leaving lashes on my skin, 12 
years young
You said you were my friend, a 
knife in my back 
I try to compensate for the 
things I lack
Mirror, mirror on the wall
For your redemption I will crawl
Through the hate society brings
PERFECTION the media sirens 
sing
Deathly thin and too much 
concealer
Everyone tries, but nothing can 
heal her
Darkened eyes and foggy 
thoughts 
Look at what your "standards" 
brought 
Mirror, mirror on the wall
I bow to your subjective call
From the land of make believe
I surface with the reality that 
made me leave 
Not good enough! The voices 
shout 
Be thinner, be prettier! All this 
doubt
Killing the teenager before the 
fight
Nothing you can do will make 
this right
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Why is it now, I feel so small 
She's dead! She's dead! 
Society's surprised
He's broken! He's bleeding! 
Your plan devised 
Break us down because we're 
not conforming 
"The world is your stage!" Well 
I'm done performing
Toss aside my feelings no 
longer
You must hate that I'm getting 
stronger 
Mirror, mirror on the wall
No more influence, I'm 
standing tall
Picking up the pieces and 
sorting them through 
Shatter the deceiving image 
that once hurt
Control it no longer the truth 
we must blurt 
Breaking us down will happen 
no more 
Now all your shards fall to the 
floor
Mirror, mirror on the wall
We are the fairest of them all
Believe in us and you will see
Everything I know we can be
