The other day,

I saw a picture

Of a skinny model

So skinny that her ribs stuck out

And her arms looked liked twigs

 

That picture

Made me sick -

Sick to my stomach

And sick to my soul

 

That made me remember

That I don't want to become the person

That I've convinced myself I want to be

 

When Lindsay Lohan transformed

From a red-headed beauty

Into a stick skinny blonde,

It annoyed me so much

That she just gave up

What used to make her stand out

 

I feel like the same thing

Is happening to me,

I'm transforming,

From a carefree happy girl,

Into a shallow everyday teen

 

I want to be unique again

I want to by myself

I want to be proud of my body

For all its shapes and curves

 

But wanting is no longer

Doing is my future

Being is my goal

 

I'm ready to stop caring

About things of small importance

 

And become myself again

A carefree, happy girl,

 

Unique in my own way.
