I Am Not Perfect

I am not perfect.
I am not thin.
I am a monster
with my scarred skin.

I am not beautiful.
Beauty is a lie.
I beg for salvation or
a reason to survive

I am not strong.
I have brittle bones.
I attack myself
with knives and stones

I am not yet perfect.
I am not yet thin.
But I will be.
Or I will die trying.
