Feeling skinny feels great...? Printable Version PRINTABLE VERSION
by Itzel, United States Dec 10, 2009
Health , Food   Poetry


This poem expresses the struggle in the mind of somebody battling with anorexia: the conflict between self-perception and reality.

It does feel great!
I can’t stand the hunger.
I’ve been lying all the time.
I see the mirror and I hate it.
I can’t believe this is me.

Who am I supposed to be?
Why do I look like this?
But hunger helps.
It makes me pretty.
And it feels great!

I need a friend, I feel lonely.
I hate weight, but I still love it.
Help please! I cannot stand it anymore.

This is a very moving poem. We do need more poetry and articles on self-image and eating disorders. Thank you for sharing.

It is a pity!

In life, many things we would like to achieve, but many we would not.

Thanks for shedding some light onto a very serious issue for many.

Contact the Great Mother
Ella Bruce | Aug 21st, 2017
I made a promise to tell my testimony all over the globe once my man come back to me and my husband came just as Great Mother told me when she helped me. I made the right choice to have contacted Great Mother the great spell caster who is capable of helping you solve your problems. My man left me to suffer and i never believed that he will come back to me again but when i contacted Great Mother she assured me that my man will come again. She gave me some list of items to buy but i could not get them in my country and so i sent her the money and she bought the items and prepared the perfect love spell. My husband ran back to me in 3 days time begging for forgiveness THIS IS SO REAL AND GENUINE. NO SCAMS. I was so surprise that the spell worked just as she told me. This is so amazing and i want you to believe because Great Mother is so real and i urge you contact her now on her email so that she can also help you the way she helped me. Her email is Greatmotherofsolutiontemple@yahoo.com and you can also contact her with her phone number on whats app +2348078359876 you can also check and contact her on Greatmotherofpowers.blogspot.com Greatmotherofsolution.blogspot.com
