Fake lash twinkle
In your body
You call me ugly girl without the chemicals
On my face, on my nails and in my hair
Growing it out
Pluck it out, don’t scream loud
And take the pain as beauty’s price
Spend your money and time
And dye and dye
Until you die
He doesn’t notice
How high the heels
He doesn’t care
How it feels
In animal forms
There is no such thing as “normal”;
When you try to create “normal”,
“Normal” chokes everyone involved.
I do not think anyone can be “normal.“ because I do not think normal exists. It’s a construct that differs from place to place. What it means to be normal in one country varies from what it means to be “normal” in another.
Normal seems to be a term that when applied to people it can be a source of torment. They strive to be normal or to be perceived as normal. The pressure to attain normalcy is high and it metaphorically chokes people; it impedes them from being & appreciating who they are.
A lion’s mane would’ve been permed,
zebra would be all white,
spotted leopard would’ve been spotless,
an orangutan would have blonde hair,
an elephant’s tusk would’ve been whiter,
rhinoceros would’ve had smooth skin,
hippos would’ve been skinny,
raccoons wouldn’t have had dark circles.
Need I go on?
Animal planet would’ve been rather boring to watch!

In this world,
there are some of us who get left behind
because we don’t fit the bill.
A bill that is arbitrarily in place and which
makes some magnificent, many perfectly normal,
and some of us a bunch of unworthy f*s who don’t
deserve affection, attention, and any of your time.
Go on, erase us from your narrative, from this world’s narrative,
erase us completely because our bodies are a certain way,
because it would require you to change your perspective slightly
to accommodate us into your view,
because there’s a billion to choose from who are perfectly normal
We might as well be not human because some of us don’t get to
experience human joys strictly because of how we look.
The least you could do is understand very clearly this fact
that for whatever reason, not all of us are able to experience being a human in the sense that most of you are able to
I've been struggling for years with my body image related trauma. This was just a quick rant to ease the tension I had been feeling before I put the words down.
My left pinky toe is a little long,
Right right bicep is too strong.
My nails grow a little short,
My hair grows too long.
My inside voice is a little high,
My outside voice very shy.
I have an uneven brow,
My smile is a little wry.
My arm won’t bend 90°
My legs give out before I sneeze.
Life doesn’t seem perfectly alright,
But that’s all normal, right?
A: Do you think I owe you my body because you are nice to me?
A: Do you think of me just as a boy/girl toy that you can do with as you please.
B: Only when I'm *****.
A: You expect I'll ******* after I found out how many people you've had.
B: I don't expect anything, but you probably will.
Stop pretending you don't want *****(or ****) just because of social norms, I've had both (quite a lot) and here's the trick:
DON'T ******* CONFORM!
DUCK SOCIETY :)
