The Monsters in My Head
I was a happy little girl
Playing with my Barbie’s and not having a care in the world Running wild till I fell asleep
Before the monsters caught up to me
Years go by and I’m a teenager now
I just want to look like a Barbie, but how?
I used to be so happy and now I’m so sad
My mom doesn’t understand and neither does my dad
Every day I skip dinner
Hoping I would end up thinner
I want my bones to just stick out
The war within myself makes me want to scream and shout
I stopped searching for monsters under my bed
When I realized the monsters were really in my head
