This is a poem about eating disorders.
There are so many women, and girls with this disease.
It is a killer. So many have lost their lives to this

Skin And Bone

She looks in the mirror and sees a fat pig

she wears her clothes two sizes too big

She sits at the table and picks at her food

She dont want to eat shes not in the mood

She forces it down and excuses herself

then throws it all up while inside cries for help

I hadnt noticed how thin shes become

I dont know what to do the damage is done

She lies in the hospital with tubes down her throat

then I noticed a paper of something she wrote

It read Dear mom Im sorry I worried you so

Im writing you this cause I want you to know

If I somehow dont make it I dont blame you at all

Its just something that happened and it isnt your fault

I hear the flat line my daughter was gone

and all that is left is her skin and bone
