1. What do you see?

 

What do you see every one? What do you see?

What do you see? When you’re looking at me?

A confident girl? But that’s just to hide

The shy creature that’s lurking inside.

 

The girls at school, they don’t understand who I am

Just because im not loud, and I don’t wear fake tan

They whisper and throw stuff, whilst we’re in class

They pull on my bag and kick me as I walk past

 

Do you get home from school, and want to lock yourself away?

Keep your secrets from parents; you’re too scared what they’ll say?

Have you ever been bullied? Stuck on what to do?

Do you look at them, and think it’d be easier if I were you?

 

I use make up, to hide what’s really me

Just like them is what I really want to be

I want to be beautiful, I want to be thin

But I guess that’s the battle, I truly will never win

You’ve got to understand that it’s harder than you think

Especially when I force myself not to eat and drink

 

Everyday activities, become a struggle to do

I became too thin, to even walk myself to the loo

I can’t be trusted on my own, to even sit and eat a meal

Who thought a few words could be such a big deal?

 

I had to go to counselling, all over what they said

The doctors said if I continued, I may have been dead

I deprived myself of everything, just to be thin

Congratulations bullies, you were about to win

 

Think about it, how far would you go?

Just to go away, knowing you’ve made them so low

Who thought words were so powerful, could make them so sad

If you knew what you had done, would you feel bad?

 

I look in the mirror; struggle to look at what I see

Just a fat tired girl, looking back at me

I lay in bed, I cry myself to sleep

I think of what they’ll do to me,

I continue to weep

 

Nobody can help who they are, we’re born like it

Why should I change? Just to think that I fit

I need to fight back, stick up for me

Then maybe if I’m stronger, they’ll finally see

That I’m no longer so vulnerable, not so shy

And from now on ill fight back, no need to cry

 

So I stop caring about what they say,

Just tell myself that I look okay

I know I’m not perfect, and I never will be

But people need to understand, that this is just meWhat do you see every one? What do you see?
