I'll Never Know

January 10, 2011

Struggle to ascend from the sheets of my bed
Awake and thoughts race through my head
Run to the bathroom, pull out the scale
Rip off my clothes, step on, inhale
A number appears while I hold back the tears
Three digits confirm all of my fears
Breathe out, step off, and look in the glass
Deformed, worthless, unlovable fat a**
Redress and depart with my head held low
Loving myself? That I’ll never know

The author's comments:
I channeled my daily experiences, dealing with unstable self image and body obsessions. Writing about the pain in a controlled, poetic manner releases negative energy and empowers me to think more positively. I hope all my readers embrace their beauty as it is.
