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....
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.
