In a world filled with such a distorted and warped idea about the human body,
We forgot who we really are.
The ads on the television and the posters on the clutter filled streets
Are put up by vermin whose main goal is to make you think that you need products to become beautiful.
And maybe they have convinced you that you need to skip an essential meal to become Barbie.
Or that you require makeup to become presentable.
And in a world where role models are the weight of a five year old,
And people are so judgmental about what they see on the outside,
Our own ideas about true beauty become distorted
And a poisonous seed is planted in our brains.
So I am here to remind you,
Because I know you have forgotten,
You are not ugly my dear.

Society is.
I felt poetic this morning.

Now this. This deserves attention. I really understand what you're trying to show your readers, I can't believe I didn't think of this before, this is such a big problem (is that the right word - problem?)! This is super true. I gotta suggest this to someone...

Great point to adress, we are only as screwed up as society and the media makes us. People shoudn't worry about how everyone else looks, or what everyone else has, ect. They should just live life they way they want to live and not worry about what everyone else says. I also like your choice of words and they way they are written. Well done. :)

Beautiful doesn't mean to look like everyone else
Beauty is individuality. Beauty is being different but the only curse is only you know it until that right person comes along.
