That the strong women in the commercials
Who tell us to be strong
Because we are beautiful inside
With their beautiful voices
All have airbrushed bodies
They've been photoshopped to unattainable perfection
So that we will buy a product
That will make us 'lose weight'
Or will 'cover our pimples'
But we will never be these women
We will only be beautiful
By their standards
If we live as computer images
The only way we can live up to a standard of beauty

Because it’s a lie to say that
It is my right to be an original person

Because I refuse to believe that
I am worth it
I have no power over my destiny
And I am lying when I say that

And I refuse to believe
Someone can understand me
If they just listen to me
My size matters
And no one can convince me that
I am pretty without makeup, fashionable clothing, or attention
And we will never love ourselves if we believe that these stereotypes define us

I sat up. “Go away,” I said to the figure sitting on my floor, “You’ll get rainwater on my floor.” It said nothing. It just wrung its thin wrists with its long, bony, fleshless fingers. Its hollow, sunken-in eyes stared at me from the darkness, the rest of the creature concealed by the shadows of my bedroom.
“Get out,” I commanded, gesturing to the window. The creature, still silent, crept toward the bed with a small squishing sound. It disappeared from sight as it bowed its head, and then I saw it rear up against the edge of my bed. It placed its long fingers atop my blanket, its eyes staring into my tarnished soul. Suddenly I felt very, very small in the middle of this bed. Lightning flashed outside, il

Hello! I'm Dracosphere, and I am a nerd of MASSIVE proportions. I love to make art, and I love strange music and weird shows. |
I can do art requests, if anyone is interested and/or willing.
