Breathe Deep

Deep breaths don't always soothe.
My pain is hard to remove.
I'm slowly getting back to me;
A glimpse of who I can be
reveals itself quickly;
My heart healing finally.
I break away from this disease.
Thought it cannot just completely cease.
At least I can say I'm trying,
My insides are no longer frying.
While still burnt they're cooling down.
They will never again treat me like a clown.

I wrote this while I was in recovery for my eating disorder. Many people put me down and told me that I was not skinny enough to have an eating disorders. They said a lot of other things. While I was in the hospital, I found myself again. It's still a struggle.
