"Being happy doesn't mean everything is perfect; it means you're capable of looking beyond the imperfections." --Anonymous


From this point forward
I will not stand
to be unhappy
any longer.
I will not stand
to be broken down,
broken apart,
broken-hearted.
From this point forward
my success does not depend
on my waistline
and my strength does not depend
on my weakness.
My biggest fear is not
the nutrition label.
From this point forward
I will not worry those
who love me.
I will not look at those
with hip bones
and rib cages
and be jealous.
I will not be afraid
to eat the birthday cake
you made me.
I will not measure
every morsel as if
any more would make
it poison.
From this point forward
food is not my enemy
and Ana is not my friend.
Size zero is not beautiful
and 90 pounds is not ideal.
I am no longer
enslaved by my scale
and it is not an awful day
when I weigh enough
to donate blood.
From this point forward
the only things coming
out of my mouth will be
words.
I will no longer be called
Disgraceful,
Disgusting,
Distasteful.
From this point forward
I am
Inspired,
Indestructable,
Independent.

Whoa! This is beautiful. Every woman comes in different shapes and sizes, some will weigh more, and some will weigh less. For the majority of us who weigh more, guys like curves!

"Our love is like the wind. I can't see it, but I feel it." -A Walk To Rememeber

I can tell how much you put into this. The emotions are very strong and clear. I want to say how hard it can be for a writer to be able to word their emotions in the exact way they feel and how hard it is to write so little but mean so much, just like you did. You only wrote so much, but the meaning and the emotions that this little poem gives off is very powerful and very beautiful. You are a GREAT writer and I believe you're going to go far in life with writing.

Ps: I'm offically your #1 fan ;)

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine as children do. It's not just in some of us; it is in everyone. And as we let our own lights shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.
((From the movie Coach Carter))

love the message, and the style.

awesome piece!

It's something I would write

but you worded it better. :]
