Where does this lead?

I never thought much of it
Its how you act, its what you do
Make it smaller, make it fit
You are not supposed to be just you
Chasing something I don't know what is
On my tippy-toes reaching
For an entity buried in the abyss
Be tiny, miniscule or petite
Never have dreams beyond your reach
At no time express a need
No one loves a slimy leach
Keep tightening the corset
Don't waste time trying to breathe
The air is for those who deserve it
You barely bare the worth of their feet
You need to be thin
Don't take up too much space
But don't think you will any hearts win
You're not someone to chase
Know you will never be enough
You don't fit the golden rule
Your either too mild or too rough
Either boring or a total fool
Stick to your role
But don't expect a thing
Smaller is always my goal
Only because all else is too tiring
