Mirror mirror, on the wall

who is the fairest of them all?

Society says beauty is in a magazine

or is the girl who's crowned homecoming queen.

Society dictates what we find attractive

by using people and ads to make girls more adaptive

to society's whims as they lay our flaws bare

while those who are deemed beautiful stop, point, and stare.

Mirror mirror on the wall,

who is the fairest of them all?

The girl with ribs poking from her sides

after being told she had "too much fat on her thighs"?

or maybe it's the girl with scars on her wrists

because she was beaten by her own father's fists?

Perhaps you believe that the fairest to see

is someone who's broken inside just like me?

Mirror mirror on the wall,

Who is the fairest of them all?
