Dying To Be Thin

She’s dying to be thin

it’s all she can think of,

convinced she’ll be more attractive

and easier to love.

She sees girls on the cover

of her favorite magazine,

and she thinks they look so happy,

being beautiful and lean.
She looks in the dressing mirror

and frets over her weight,

until she goes to the bathroom

to throw up what she ate;

She’s already petite

but no one can tell her that,

for in her little mind

she’s nothing less than fat.
In all the music videos,

and all the shows on TV,

the girl everyone wants to be with

is thin as thin can be;

She wants to be just like her

so she weighs herself again,

Killing herself every day

just dying to be thin.
