"Noone can make you feel inferior without your consent."


Every day I stand in the lunch line.
I buy a lunch.
I throw it away.
Works every time.
Every day my food finds its way into my napkin.
Then to the trashcan.
Works every time.
I tell my friends I already ate.
I'm not hungry thank you.
Works every time.
Every day Mom makes me a snack.
I make eating sounds.
I hide the carefully prepared snack in my closet till garbage day.
Works every time.
Every day I lose a pound.
Works every time.
Every day I lose some hair.
Every day I feel sick.
Every day I see ugly.
Then I die.
Anorexia never works.

We make the dragons as we make the gods, because we need them, because somewhere deep in our hearts, we recognize that a world without them is a world not living in.
No, I would not want to live in a world without dragons, as I would not want to live in a world wihtout magic, for that is a world without mystery, and that is a world without faith.

I think the message is really good, freaky, but good and very true! Keep writing:)

@kashiena- which parts? I agree, but in order to revise, specific areas would be lovely!

@silver.lotus- yeah, i was debating about the last sentence, (which is where the preachiness comes off).. what would you suggest?

@pianophantom- THANK YOU!!!

I liked it, but certain parts didn't seem to flow as well as they felt like they should. Good, though!

This is really good! Kinda creepy :/ I loved it except for the end, it seemed slightly preachy in a way, but I love the statement.  Keep it up!(:
