You’re a woman now    I was only 13    Weighed down by expectations to hold up an illusion One only others could see     Having to accept things     About something I never asked to be     I feel more comfortable in clothes     Two sizes too big for me     But they feel the need to speak     To stare    I can’t count how many times     My knees became weak     When I realized the motives of those around me     But if I screamed The world would just close its eyes     It’s just a part of womanhood 
Or that’s what everyone tries to tell me And so I feel safest in clothes Two sizes too big for me And why I keep space Between me and themI see the motives behind their sparkling eyes  And the silver in their tongues when they lie So now I won’t be accepting things For something only others can see
