Everyday, girls look in the mirror
and don’t like what they see.
Too fat,
Too skinny,
Too flat,
Too ugly.
Caking on makeup like a baker,
They try to cover their imperfections
And who can blame them?
All they have ever seen in the world is negativity
Women are taught they can be strong? Maybe
But most of these “strong women” have gotten there by looking pretty.
Guys cat call girls and give them compliments like “ur hot”
And even if they think it’s nice, it’s really not
Words like these teach women they need to look the part in order to be worth something
That they need to be by the side of a man
After all, what’s a queen without a king
They are hidden from the beautiful truth
Which has affected women all the way down to today’s youth
Women need to see they are worth more than society tells
They shouldn’t be bound to housework and sold from their family to a husband at the sound of wedding bells.
We are strong, without the help of the man
Independent, powerful, anything we want to do we can
So wipe that makeup from your face,
Cause you don’t need it anymore.
You may think you need it to be “pretty,”
But I am positively sure,
You looked way better the way you were before
