What They Call Perfection, Is Really Not

Drawn by Me

They call it perfection
Trying to strive and live up to others expectations.
Magazines showing size 0.
Thinking we’re bigger than we really are.
Why is body image so important?
It makes a person feel small.
Thin figures and thigh gaps.
That’s perfection?
It is like taking a pair of scissors to invisible fat.
Shaving away the imperfections.
Cannot look in the mirror without changing.
Changing the hair and face multiple times to find perfection.
Picking out problem areas.
Cutting them from the body.
Perfection is nonexistent.
From the hip bones, to the collarbone.
Nothing is perfect.
The magazines are photoshopped and airbrushed.
That is what society looks up to.
