    So I wasn't sure where else to put this so...here it is.

    This song is fucking perfect. It might be a TAD triggering but the message is amazing and worth it in my opinion. But yeah proceed with caution I guess :) Let me know what you think. Also here is a link if you want! [video=youtube;j7tlFfKCESg]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=j7tlFfKCESg[/video]



    Mary Lambert - I Know Girls:

    I Know girls who are trying to fit into the social norm
    Like squeezing into last year's prom dress
    I know girls who are low rise, mac eye shadow, and binge drinking
    I know girls that wonder if they're disaster and sexy enough to fit in
    I know girls who are fleeing bombs from the mosques of their skin
    Playing Russian roulette with death; it's never easy to accept that our bodies are fallible and flawed
    But when do we draw the line?
    When the knife hits the skin?
    Isn't it the same thing as purging
    Because we're so obsessed with death
    Some women just have more guts than others

    The funny thing is women like us don't shoot
    We swallow pills, still wanting to be beautiful at the morgue
    Still proceeding to put on make-up
    Still hoping that the mortician finds us fuckable and attractive
    We might as well be buried with our shoes and handbags and scarves, girls
    We flirt with death every time we etch a new tally mark into our skin
    I know how to split my wrists to reveal a battlefield too
    But the time has come for us to reclaim our bodies

    Our bodies deserve more than to be war-torn and collateral
    Offering this fuckdom as a pathetic means to say,
    "I only know how to exist when I am wanted."

    Girls like us are hardly ever wanted, you know
    We're used up and we're sad and drunk and
    Perpetually waiting by the phone for someone to pick up and tell us that we did good
    Well, you did good.

    (I know I am because I said, "I am."
    My body is home)

    Try this
    Take your hands over your bumpy love body naked
    And remember the first time you touched someone
    With the sole purpose of learning all of them
    Touched them because the light was pretty on them
    And the dust in the sunlight danced the way your heart did
    Touch yourself with a purpose
    Your body is the most beautiful royal
    Fathers and uncles are not claiming your knife anymore
    Are not your razor, no
    Put the sharpness back
    Lay your hands flat and feel the surface of scarred skin
    I once touched a tree with charred limbs
    The stump was still breathing
    But the tops were just ashy remains
    I wonder what it's like to come back from that because
    Because sometimes I feel forest fires erupting from my wrists
    And the smoke signals sent out are the most beautiful things I've ever seen

    Love your body the way your mother loved your baby feet
    And brother arm wrapping shoulders, and remember
    This is important

    You are worth more than who you fuck
    You are worth more than a waistline
    You are worth more than beer bottles displayed like drunken artifacts.
    You are worth more than any naked body could proclaim in the shadows,
    More than a man's whim or your father's mistake
    You are no less valuable as a size 16 than a size 4
    You are no less valuable as a 32a than a 36c
    Your sexiness is defined by concentric circles within your wood
    It is wisdom
    You are a goddamn tree stump with leaves sprouting out
    Reborn

    You are worth more than who you fuck
    You are worth more than a waistline
    You are worth more than beer bottles displayed like drunken artifacts.
    You are worth more than any naked body could proclaim in the shadows,
    More than a man's whim or your father's mistake


    beautiful, thank you !
