"Some of the best and most beautiful things cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart." Helen Keller


Can’t you see them?
Sleek, straight hair
Beautiful faces
Beautiful teeth
Size 0 waists and hips?
They waltz around and giggle
In that way only the perfect American teen can
So what am I?
Curvy like an Indian
With a black girl’s butt
Tiny teeth
Flat brown eyes
Hair that never stays in place
I want to see my bones
Pretty colors flood a porcelain bowl
As my lips go up in flames
A secret I kept under my skin
Now floats before me
I am disgusted
As I see what I put into my mouth
The future me would be so proud I was so strong
Goal: 145
Goal: 130
Goal: 125
Goal: 0
0 is perfect
0 is beautiful
How I long for 0…
