A poem dedicated to girls who are fighting for a chance to be 'beautiful.'
She looks in the mirror,
what does she see?
A girl with so many flaws,
not as pretty as can be.

She blames herself
for not eating right,
yet the girl next door
doesn't put up a fight.

It is within her nature
to hide her true beauty.
For the girl with a big stomach,
isn't written or heard about,
in her favourite magazines.

Everyday she tries
to look pretty enough,
for she plasters on make up.
Only for others to see,
how cake faced and ugly
she is to be.

Society categorises her
into a wasted space.
She has forgotten her elegance
and the way food tastes.

One day she wakes up
and jumps out of bed.
She realises her true beauty
isn't in her head.
It is hidden underneath
oh so very deep,
that it takes more to find
and complete.

She smiles to herself,
for society had conned her.
Her package of happiness
had come with a deal.
For she was slowly learning to heal.

She could no longer feel bad,
or unhappy about her weight.
For she was the girl,
who realised it wasn't too late.
