"Do you remember the girl we teased,
the girl who begged us to stop, oh please?
the girl who grew before we did
and we tormented because of it?
I saw her now, on my way,
she never grew after that day
the day we told her she was fat,
and would not fit in because of that.
It turns out she stopped to think
and found herself at the brink
Finally she let go
forgot to eat, that's what I know.
And tried to shrink away from us,
became so tiny that thus
finally that's all she was
And now I saw her, on my way
Beneath the headstone, there she lay
Like a fairy, so thin and small,
robbed of wings by the names we call."
