Your Body Is Yours to Change

In a world where you can be

Whoever you desire.

Perfectly mold your face

To match your attire.

Carve away unwanted curves

As if flesh were stone.

Turn flesh fibers to plastic,

Restructure bone.

Will you choose to treat your body

As if it were clay

Kneading your insecurities

Changing your display?

If we say there is no

Beauty ideal

Why can we never accept

Faces that are real?

Yes, your body is a sculpture

For your design.

But there is more to living

Than a face to refine.
