Negative By Proxy (The psychological damage of a child into womanhood)

My mama said you are the thin one
That made my sister feel so fat
My mama said she was the pretty one
That made me feel so ugly

My mama said she was the the clever one
That made me feel so dumb
My mama said Iwas the sexy one
That made my sister feel so ugly

I am beauty and I am the beast

Here I am Mama, take a look at me now
My sister too
We are both oh so clever and beautiful
Survivors to the end

Though parts of the negative by proxy remain with us both
The psychological damage of a child into womanhood
