But I'M Only One Voice - Poem by Danielle Fraser

I wish I could tell you
That you're not fat
That you're fine just the way you are
That you're pretty enough
And you don't need to wear heels
I wish I could make you beleive
That you don't have to starve
Or add to your chest
To fit this years fashions
And I wish I could tell you
To love yourself as much as I love you
You don't have to make yourself
Into his Ideal...
The real you is worth so much more
But I'm only one voice, against so many
The magazines with diets and makeovers
The fairytales your mom read to you as a child
Oh I wish I could make you listen
But I'm only one voice
Drowned out by so many.

    And a very important voice Danielle - the media has far too much influence. Excellent piece of writing, very insightful. (Report) Reply
