‘Pleasure’ – Sarah Kang

When I was only ten, I was told by a man

He smiled as he said, "You just need to understand
Unless you grow thinner, no man would ever want you"

And what a grownup said I believed as children do

She wasn't made for your pleasure
Don't you blame it on human nature
She wasn't made for your pleasure
Oh, who will love her?

Daisy, go dress yourself in a red disguise
To look like a rose, you must pay a heavy price

Try to be beautiful and pleasing to the eye
Run after your youth 'til the day that you die

She wasn't made for your pleasure
Don't you blame it on human nature
She wasn't made for your pleasure
Oh, who will love her?
