In the mirror I see a face

That's just as pretty as can be

But then I glance towards the floor

And see the weight that is me

I want to be pretty and I want to be loved

I am tired of just being 'the friend'

I am sick of being 'the tagalong'

I just wish the prejudice would end

Just because they are skinny

They get more out of the world

And just because I am fat

I get thrown to the side and twirled

I want to be loved for who I am, not what they see

I want to be loved for who I am inside

I want to be seen deep in my heart

I never want to have to hide
