Ana’s poem

She stares at her thick flesh,

She wishes it was thinner,

The skin seems fresh,

But is it all an imaginary blur,

 

Her mother embodies the same thick flesh,

She cries thinking maybe that’s her too,

The flesh is distorted and a mess,

In fear all the time that she has that flesh too.

 

She can’t tell the difference between her and her mother’s body,

She wants to be free from this curse,

With hope that the bodies don’t mix,

She wants to be free from the constant mental agony but it only get’s worse,

 

Food is always on her mind,

She can’t eat for fear that it will remain,

She constantly counts her meals in her head as a reminder,

Remain in her body and leave a mental stain,

But refusing nourishment is not the answer,

 

A few months pass and she sees progress,

But she hates the discipline it takes,

She know she loves food but she eats less,

And her heart aches as it breaks,

 

Maybe the curse will break,

And so it will,

As long as it takes,

For she will be once more forefilled.
