I’m Sure

 

Why, may I ask,

Why?

Was it something I’ve done?

Something I’ve said?

Something I should have done,

But didn’t?

How come I,

Me,

Is ‘that’ one?

That person,

The girl who can never feel

Like she’s worth it,

The one with ‘problems’,

The one who can’t eat,

What happened for me to deserve this?

It’s what I want,

Isn’t it?

I just wanted to be alright,

No, not alright,

Perfect.

I took it into my own hands

To make that happen,

To be like I should be.

Perfect.

And now,

Apparently,

That’s wrong,

I’m not allowed to make my own choices,

To do what I want,

How am I meant to be perfect

If being perfect is wrong too?

But, I can be perfect,

I just need to try harder.

I will do this,

It’s for the best.

I’m sure...
