one I made myself "Catch the bullet, no ones hurt? then lets all move on" i just mean, if no one gets hurt lets just all move on, theres no need for bitterness.


Torn photos lay around me
Sticking my head on new bodies
Starving myself just to be skinny
Wishing I didn’t have to, but there never is too thin
I went from a size 12 to a size 8
But I still was fat, still mentally overweight
Surviving on water was not surviving at all
But I was trapped in a mental prison and I couldn't break the wall
I was jealous of the pretty girls, they had it all
They were so skinny without even trying
Every time I tried it was like my Caribbean roots kept defying
My thighs still fat
Bottom still big
But as my chest contracts you could see my ribs
Reflecting a 21st century view
Size 0 was the only size I wanted to get to.


The author's comments:
I wrote this when I became size 10 again. I was so happy I felt and looked normal again. I hope people will understand that if they ever go through something like this that someone else has and the right help will lead you to a brighter day.
