about conforming to beauty standards
|I've never worn and outfit as uncomfortable as my skin. |
but this was permanent,
I can't throw away my body,
I am stuck.
A blob of unsatisfactory flesh,
I found myself spilling out everywhere,
Taking up so much room.
Girls aren't supposed to do that.
Take up room.
We're supposed to be small and meek.
Confined to a glass cage of femininity.
But every time I look in the mirror the glass breaks,
and my flesh spills everywhere.
