Stop saying I need to lose weight
Simply because I'm a size sixteen.
Stop telling me I'm not pretty
Just because my lips don't have that lipstick sheen.
Stop offering me obnoxiously tight clothes
For my boobs to be viewed as a free show.
Stop saying I'm stuck up
For having self-respect and letting you know.
Stop pressuring me to have sex
When if I do, you'll only degrade me more.
Stop making fun of me when you can't fix your own problems;
We've been through this before.
Stop trying to tear me down
When I break free of your expectations.
I'm not your puppet or your doll;
I'm one of God's creations.
I don't care if you think
That my hard-earned self-confidence
Is nothing short of
A "basic bitch's" arrogance.
You're only bringing yourself down
Because your insults are falling through.
In short, my dear society,
I'm stronger than you.
