Thigh Gap

I don't understand why in today's world

It's sexy to be thin

To have so little fat, so little curves

It's just bones under skin

And among so many beautiful girls 

Not one of them loves

The body they're in

 

And in today's world, it's easy to want 

The illustrious thigh gap

And the kind of thin models flaunt

Where even chests are flat

And every starved and sickly actress seems to scoff 

At my healthy curves

They like to call fat

 

In today's world, a girl like me walks through the halls

Shy and cautious 

Because we have been taught that thigh gaps too small

Make us aweless

And society likes to take the time to point out the flaws

In us, when really

We're flawless

 

In today's world, while others waste their time

On the thigh gap allure

I find that I am flawless because I live my life 

By opening doors

And instead of my looks, I let my actions define

Who I am, and that

Says a lot more

 

I'd like to tell the world that today, I declare

I'm more than a size

I'm the music I make, the talents I share

The thrill in my eyes

And that kind of flawless beauty is rare

And means more than the gap

Between my thighs
