I see the color of your skin. I see the color of your hair. Mine is straight and yours is curly. I am short and you are tall. My eyes are big and yours are small. We both love to play. I have a jump rope and you have a ball. My tummy’s big and yours is small.

All the kids are always around you; I’m always alone. They all joke about me being fat, but deep down we’re all the same. Your clothes are new and mine are old. Can you come over after school and play? “I can’t, I have ballet class today.”

You’re so popular; I wish I was like you. You have so many friends, even boys too. I want to be skinny and wear clothes like you too. I can’t wait to grow up so I can be pretty too.
