"You're fat" they say on Monday 

I go home and cry 

I stop eating 

I start running

Now I'll be like them

"You're ugly" they say on Tuesday 

Then the bell rings

I drive to the store

And buy everything I need

New clothes

New makeup 

Now I'll be like them 

"You're stupid" they say on Wednesday 

I look down at my feet

I spend my hours studying

With very little sleep 

Now I'll be like them 

"You're gross" they say on Thursday

When they see me with him

I dump him

I break his heart

Now I'll be like them

"You're weird" they say on Friday 

So I instantly sit up 

I make my clothes normal 

And my hair red to brown 

Now I'll be like them 

"She's amazing" they say on Saturday 

After they find me dead 

They cry 

They sob 

They put their head in their hands 

"She's perfect" they say on Sunday 

As they see me in my casket 

They see the scars covering my body 

Weird 

Gross 

Stupid 

Ugly 

Fat

They suddenly realize 

After all that they've said 

They're the reason I'm dead
