The silent killer

Influenced by Media 

Thinness takes over the mind forgetting natural beauty.

Your body eats itself over thinking you’re not enough. 

Tears drip down your face as you watch the “icons” of today. 

You look in the mirror, comparing yourself to what’s known as the “ NORM”.

Implanting the idea that “skinny” is best. 

Knowing deep down you’ll never look like them.

That pain haunts you like the food on your plate. 

Hiding the pain behind a smile when your friends ask you “ have you lost weight?”. 

You respond with “ No i’ve just been working out” when really you can’t even finish a meal. 

The media proves how much “ standards” have changed.
