Example

“Ain’t no doctor or pill that can take the pain away, the pain’s inside and nobody frees you from your own body, it’s the soul that needs surgery; it’s my soul that needs surgery. Plastic smiles and denial can only take you so far, then you break when the fake facade leaves you in the dark. You’re left with shattered mirrors and the shards of a beautiful past.”
“Blonder hair, flat chest; TV says, ‘bigger is better,’ south beach, sugar free, Vogue says, ‘thinner is better.” 1
