You think your fat you think your thin
But that's just how the war begins
Between your body between yourself
Either way you're hurting your health.

You look in the mirror what do you see???
O I see I see a huge figure staring back at me.

Your told you're not huge you're as thin as a rail
But you just think they are lies people tell.

You get smaller and smaller you make yourself sick.
But your so deep in that you just won't quit.

You starve yourself day in and day out
Now tell me what the hell that's all about.

It's not healthy fore you if you can't tell.
So just don't do it I promise I won't tell.

I feel everything you said. I've lived day in and day out with my sickness, and your poem captured the cynical game it plays with you. Great writing, don't stop
