Hello Me

It’s been a while since I faced the mirror 

Its been a while since I saw myself

I have seen many horrors

That sometimes I wish I was someone else

So one this day I slowly walked up to my reflection 

And I saw the real me for the first time

Will I ever lose the pounds I gained?

I’m drifting to isolation again

Confidence gained is now confidence lost

And I have but myself to blame the most

Spare me the sweet talk and tell me straight

That I’ve once again gained weight

Allow Me

Allow me to be me

Do not wish for me to be someone else

Do not hate me for being unchanging

For wanting just to be me

I change when I am ready

But do not force me

Do not reprimand me

Do not cast me out

Allow me to be just the same girl you knew

You loved

How To Be Me

People ask how to be like other people

They imitate and try to be the other person

They want not just to be like them but to be them

Live the life the other lives

But what if

I just want to be me?

Tell me, is that so wrong if I do not conform?

Shapes

Time to stop the whining 

I have to start winning

Prove to no one I can do this

Prove only to myself I can’t miss

I have to set my mind to working hard

Getting back in shape will such a reward

How I Look

Judge me for how I look

And you have already condemned me

Eat Up

Be skinny

Be still and stay silent

Eat everthing with your eyes

Let none pass your mouth for fear of being called BIG

Mind everything that everyone says

So you will end up being eaten up by society’s idealism of a perfect body

Keep The Sun

It shines bright

It’s brighter than ever

But I’m stuck inside looking out

Trapped

I can only wish that the sune keeps its brightness 

Until I am able to play under it once more

I’m too fat again

I’m too skinny tomorrow

I will never be enough

I will never be just fine

I’m either too much or too little 

Not enough or an excess

I’m starting to fall again

Fall out of love of myself

Preference 

I prefer to be alone

I prefer to walk on my own

Is it so wrong?

Words from a Little Person
