For every beautiful thought
A thousand fat ones swarm around her
For every carrot she eats
Ten delicious, forbidden, hateful
squares of chocolate pass her lips
For every leap of joy
There’s a thousand tears of pain
A swipe of lipstick masks a cry
of being un-beautiful
A sneaker hits the cement
5 pounds will make all the difference
No blissful dreams for her
A reward un-worthy of her pressing need
To study late hours of the night
A night owl hoots
She ignores the beauty of the nature
For every feeling of worth
Is gone
And she becomes forgotten
