She stands there staring at her reflection in the mirror
She wonders why her friends won't go near her
She pokes at her thighs wondering why they're so jiggly
And why when she's eating lunch, the girls are all giggly
She wishes she didn't have such a big appetite
She wants to enjoy the sight when she looks in the mirror at night.
This girl has a plan and hopefully the popular girls will give her a chance.

She stands there staring at her reflection in the mirror
She wonders why her friends won't go near her
She pokes at her hollow cheeks wondering why the boys look with disgust
And why everyone keeps asking why she isn't eating much
Her thighs don't rub together when she walks from place to place
And her cheeks don't bounce upon her face
She wonders why no one will befriend her
And as she walks through the halls, she still hears the whispers
Isn't this what they've always wanted?
She can't please anyone and she's always taunted
She gets weaker and weaker everyday
As she's slowly fading away
She tries so hard but it's never enough
Maybe that's why she has just given up.
