Weight for me.
-verse 1-
Why do I do this to myself
Will this mayhem never end?
I just want to be beautiful
I guess I could just pretend
One more cigarette
I wish I was as light as the smoke
Emptiness roots in me
And every bite I take I choke
I feel my insides collapse
Iím broken and Iím battered
And Iíve learned
Size really does matter
-verse 2-
Iíve never felt this weak
And so proud in one time
I will not dare break down
No, Iím just in my prime
Few more inches
A few more pounds
A lot less love
So small around
One touch and I bruise
My life has been shattered
And I know
Size really does matter
-vocal breakdown-
Pale skin
Hurt within
Jutting bones
Iím all alone
Just one more day
Ana will go away
Then I wonít lie
Just say goodbye
-end chorus-
Leave it to society
With their faceless chatter
To make us all believe
Size really does matter.

My Diva! I know you wrote this as a poem. But I tell you it sings as lyrics to me or as spoken word. 'Size really does matter' is a great refrain.I would stand and pitch this piece proud and true. March to a different drum and be okay with it.Little girls have their own problems and they couldn't write this poem. Good job well written.

One should not judge a book by it's cover. BUT, in today's image society, it makes life difficult for many.
