Zzzz Beauty Standards - Poem by .Pd. is here

Don't read fashion magazines,
They'll make you feel ugly;
With polished faces staring back at you
Your face may suddenly start to seem like a cluttered view.

Don't flip through diet and exercise books
They'll make you feel fat and the fat symdrome blues;
With teh sight of JLO butts and 36-24-36 figures
Your regrets will grow and depression will be triggered.

Don't measure yourself by the worldly beauty standards
They'll make you feel like a good for nothing;
With stick-like bodies labelled as perfect
Your self-esteem will dip and you'll be left to fret.

Don't go on being obsessed with your exterior
Shun the layers and discover the interior;
Grow to accept yourself and work up your charm
Make your own beauty standards Girl, take the world by storm!
