Mommyís princess, donít play rough,
Mommy, am I pretty enough?
Silver spoon, dress my part,
Diamonds cut into my heart.
Flawless clothes, make-up, and hair,
It certainly matters what you wear.
Teeth are meant for bleaching and braces,
A perfect smile will take you places.
Daddyís girl, Iíll make you tough,
Daddy, am I smart enough?
Make us happy, make us proud,
Daughter, stand above the crowd.
Bury my identity-dig the hole,
Being perfect numbs my soul.
Body image-donít eat that,
Perfect girls are not fat.
Fallacy of perfection,
Adolescent years of rejection.
Marry a man like our kind,
Gold, silver, and fancy wine.
Religious rituals-donít rebuff,
God, am I worthy enough?
Perfect woman in a mirror of confusion,
Being perfect is just an illusion.
