Let There Be Healing My Little Anorexia Rose

Please Play This Beautiful Song While Reading This Dedication

To All The Beautiful Girls In The World Who Have Lost Their Way..........

I know how much you suffer,

The anguish of your days,

Your hunger and your weakness,

That never goes away.


Your body is your focus,

The thin-ness you cannot see,

A constant, cruel obsession,

That rules your destiny.

Your not alone..

Laxatives and purging,

A horrid, daily chore,

The guilt and all the hopelessness,

Demands you do it more.


You hide your illness daily,

A weakness you deny,

That robs you of vitality,

Alone you sit and cry.

Don't cry my rose...

Never quite content,
With all the weight you have shed,
Your body stripped of nutrients,
Longing to be fed.


You believe with your body wasted,
How much happier you will be,
That is pure deception,
I know it once was me.

Look up to the sun and see the light that shines for you.

You see, I know the torment,

The darkness in the nights,

The obsession with my body,

It just never seemed just right.


Thin-ness won't bring you peace inside,

It is all a vicious lie,

That by starving our own bodies,

We will either live or die.

What is the world doing to you?

For when we’ve taken things too far,

Our attractiveness is lost,

For all the days we have suffered,

Look at what its cost.


My little rose your too young to die,
Don't throw your life away,
My eyes spill forth many tears,
As for you my rose, I pray.

There is hope little rose...

That little girl inside you,

That once ran in harmony ,

She is still there deep inside you,

Asking to be free.


See God's precious angels,
Standing bright and tall,
They're standing in your shadows,
In case that you should fall.

Angels weep for you

Look into your heart,

And you will truly see,

The strength, the hope, the spirit,

The chains to set you free.


Fight for life and sanity,

Become your own best friend,

Opt for health and laughter,

Let this madness end.

Time to take your life back my rose.

When we are weak we are too blind to see the angels that stand in our shadows.
When we are weak we are too blind to see the angels that stand in our shadows.

'Sometimes when you want something so bad, then when you finally get it, you realize you never wanted it at all.'

'Live, laugh, love, reach out your hand, for there may be no tomorrow. Be all you can, while you can'.

This was absolutely powerful, BP. I'm practically speechless after having read this. The music that accompanied your poem was perfect in its effect. You've reach a new plateau entirely by writing this. Thank you so much for sharing this with all of us. You are a beacon of compassion. xoxox

BP words cannot describe this, its excellent, brilliant and should be out there on a more public forum than this. Can't you get that poem and pics into a mag like New Idea? I'd like to put your poem on my blog www.cindyvinesrelationshipadvice.blogspot.com. If I credit you, would that be okay? And is the one photo of the young girl in the denim shorts you?

This hub is like a punch in the stomach. Very effective though. I think it's very useful to talk about this topic, especially for those who know very little on the subject, like me. And this is one of the topics that only those who know very well, like you, can explain well. Very well done, rated up. And I'm glad you overcome it.

Hiya hynodude thanks so much for your imput. They say it is one of the hardest diseases to understand which makes it really frustrating for families trying to help, if I have shed some light that is awesome.

OMG! This pulled at my heart, and made my eyes wet. What a powerful message of understanding and hope. It has to be a devastating disease that eats at person's mind and soul. So glad you overcame this, and now you reach out and help, and educate, with the gift that you have of being able to write such, deep and beautiful poetry.

Read your last comment, yes, you have shed light, I could "see" it through your words.

I gave you a thumbs up.

What a wonderful combo of words and pictures. It is so sad that this type of behavior is running wild and unfortunately is accepted and expected in some places. I may not always be happy with the way my body looks, but I figure this is the way I am meant to be and there are things that are so much more important, valuable and priceless in life than the shape of our body.

I can barely express how powerful your words and images are to me. Though I've never suffered from this particular disorder, I've had many others. I do believe that often our 'addictions' appear in different guises.

This is beautiful.

Dear Violet-sun thank-you so so much. I'm so happy this hub spoke to your heart.If it is my life calling to help these girls and other girls who have been through abuse I would be happy to dedicate my life to doing just this. Have a wonderful day.

Hi Habee thank-you so much for coming for a read. I'm so glad you liked it. It means a lot, have a good one :)

Hi Amanda thanks a million for your comment, it is so amazing what they put themselves through. It starts off as a notion to lose weight soon spiraling out of control, it is a horrible grip in the mind that is so hard to break from


blondepoet profile image

blondepoet 6 years ago from australia Author

Thank-you so much HV, it is so true, when we are depressed our eyes fail to see not only the hope that is there but even the beauty around us.

Hi Tantrum that is so true. That is exactly how these girls can recover. Getting into their hearts that their true beauty is on the inside, and its always been there.

Hi LMY, yes you have it going on, great attitude. The esteem of a anorexic is so so low, they believe they have no worth what-so-ever, it is so sad but 100% curable.

Hi Lorlie thank you so much, it is such a hard disease for others to understand, especially as we the anorexic do not understand it as well. I really appreciated your valuable comments.

Hi Run Down Battery, coming from a guy who found time to come and read this, it means a lot, thank-you.

Hi TG, awww you are the bees knees, thanks a million. It is great that I have been having real men coming over here to read it, shows what a unique great bunch of hubbers you are. x0

Hi Tatjana, thanks so much again. Yes the pics are indeed horrifying and what is even worse, is the girls in them still think they are fat, in this horrible disease,your eyes give a distorted image of the body and that is why the weight loss just keeps going downward. :)

Tender, insightful, thoughtful piece about a painful and difficult subject. Those pictures depict such a harsh but telling and true reality for so many women with this condition. Thank you for shedding light on it.

akirchner 6 years ago from Central Oregon

Yes - our daughter is okay - and I should have said that - thank goodness. It was terribly traumatic and it made us both feel so powerless. We saw the signs and we could not believe it - but reality is the deal. Thankfully she got lots of help and it worked out okay - as in your case. It is a terribly prevalent problem and I understand it because we all have our ways of dealing with stress and our self image. It is just part of the package I guess what coping mechanism people select. Kudos to all of us who overcome what is bugging us!


blondepoet profile image

blondepoet 6 years ago from australia Author

Thanks so much akirchner for taking the time to come back. I am thrilled she is good, a huge relief. When you say you were powerless, that is such a spot on way of describing what it is like for the anorexia's family and friends. Your daughter is so blessed to have a parent like you.

Needless to say, this is a sobering and important subject. I'm not overlooking the young women who are so harmed by this; but all I kept thinking, when looking at those pictures, was how horrible it would be for a parent to watch his/her beautiful child starved to this point.

Hi Lisa oh yes it would be devastating for a parent to see, looking back now I can see how those that were close to me must have felt to see me like that. Thank-you so much for coming by. :)

I know because of my sister’s battle with this, that you are never completely recovered from it! It is a battle you must face every day and I commend your commitment and inner strength! I cried while reading you poem! Thank you for sharing and saving 1,000's of your readers lives!

I rated this hub up a notch!

Aww thank-you so much cluense. You out of all people would understand especially having your sister going through this how utterly tragic it all is. You are so so right you never completely get over it, it tries to rise up its head daily. When I see it coming I close my eyes and say to myself "No".

I never want to go down that road again. Never.It is an easy road to go down coming back up is such a struggle.

I hope it can help even one soul who happens to stumble across it. Your comments mean heaps to me thank-you.

blake4d 6 years ago from Now Rising Out of Phoenix Arizona Earthlings

That is so sad and yet uplifting in the way you presented it. Too often eating disorders are presented in such a way that even though well intentioned, it actually shames the people it intended on helping. Your choice of music as a compliment was a very good idea. But we already know that you are full of good ideas. Great job as usual BP.

Now don't let it go to your head.

Unless that is where you'd like it...hmmm...

Blondepoet - A truly amazing poem, that will touch the heart of so many lives. I am speechless! My heart goes out to all that know someone or have fallen victim to this devastating disorder themselves.

Congratulations to you for overcoming this. A truly amazing feat in itself. One knows, you have had to be there to write something like this. Your words come from the depth of knowing and your heart speaks the language from the years of pain held deep within. You are truly an inspiration to all!

This poem needs to be out there far beyond hub pages. I really hope that you will try to publish it else where. Maybe start with Oprah! She has a beautiful heart as deep and as wide as yours.

Thanks so much, Hugs!

wow. you know what is shocking is these models in these pictures, still being prepped for the runway, even though they are obviously suffering, and no one seems to notice, or care. i'm still listening to the song as i type this comment. it was perfect for this ;_;

Hi Cosette I know it is like their tiny little frames are acceptable to continue modeling. They should be doing so much more to help these girls instead of encouraging women to be pencil thin coat-hangers. I have a tear in my eye. :)

Hi there Sandy I know it is so very tragic to see a woman or a man wasting away like this. I hope some-one with this condition stumbles on this page to know there is hope to go back to the wonderful person inside.

I am in shock--the words--the pictures...all of it...so very sad. Powerful hub-just so powerful--brings tears to my eyes! You have the power of the pen!

By the way--not many people know who Eva Cassidy is nor her music--I don't know if you have heard her sing but it is is so beautiful--she is no longer here--but her music touches many. "Somewhere over the rainbow" will just make you weep--listen to it one day!

Thank-you so much Ghost I am so glad you read this piece. You know when choosing music for this poem I actually listened to Somewhere Over The Rainbow and I nearly was going to choose it, it touched me inside. I never realised she was gone. What happened to her?

Ghost Whisper 77 6 years ago from The U.S. Government protects Nazi War Criminals

I used to listen to a lot of Eva Cassidy's music--Over the rainbow is the only rendition I have ever heard, other than the original--that I just loved! She died at 33 years old from malignant mole-melanoma. Her voice was beautiful!

This song is my favorite!

mythbuster 6 years ago from Utopia, Oz, You Decide

This is an attention getting hub, blondepoet. The pictures are striking and nearly made me cry. I had to turn away for a moment because the extreme skeletal visuals were powerful. In doing so, I inadvertently did EXACTLY and precisely what these women in the pictures fear is being done (people are finding them less than beautiful)...I can only be honest here...this illness of starving and purging does not turn out physical beauties...it turns out skeletal thin individuals (again, I'm sorry) that people will turn away from. Strangely enough, I don't find myself turning away from pictures of an individual - or feeling like I'm coming to a point of tears or worrying about someone's health - if I see an individual who is 10, 20 - heck, even 50 or 60 units overweight! Again, I feel I should apologize for my reaction here. I wish I didn't have to turn away upon first glance, but it was my human reaction. *hangsheadlow*


blondepoet profile image

blondepoet 6 years ago from australia Author

Hiya mythbuster yes I did want to get people's attention on this horrible disease that once did nearly ruin my life. There is a link here to my other hub I shared my story on anorexia and my battle with it. In the poem on the other hub I mentioned that by doing this to our bodies all our attractiveness is lost, and at what cost? Yes I understand completely it is very hard to look at these girls, who could be our sisters, daughters, friends, I just hope it helps someone dearly who is fighting this. :) :)


Baileybear 6 years ago

It's so sad and irresponsible that the fashion industry insist that their slim models lose more weight to become skeletal. Did the media contribute to your illness?

Hi Bailey oh without a doubt it did. Sometimes I think the media should be crucified for the image they send out for women to follow. It really should.

Carla 6 years ago

That poem is absolutely amazing!

for a few years i went through a stage of Anorexia, and I had to be submitted to hospital. i know believe that everyone in the world needs more understanding of eating disabilities, and how easily they emerge. i remember that i stopped eating after a friend told me that if i kept eating chips i was going to get fat.

I was wondering if i could please use your poem in a poetry anthology I am constructing for a school assessment. my anthology, 'what is normal?' is focused around groups that are judged unfairly, and discriminated against in society because of our obsession with perfection.

would you also be able to answer these questions?;

- what is the tone and mood you wanted to get across to the reader?

- Does 'rose'represent an actual person, or is it symbolism for the beauty each girl has?

Thank you!

love and best wishes


blondepoet profile image

blondepoet 6 years ago from australia Author

I don't mind if it is for school I just haven't allowed it on the web yet as I am going to bring it out there very shortly. If you could use my name as a copyright much appreciated. I am sorry that you too went through that teenager years can get you if you are not careful. The mood I wan't to get across was one of awareness and to get people right in the heart, to become more aware of this disease. Rose is just symbolism for the beauty each girl has. Cheers and good luck.

You have gotten to the heart of understanding....I suffered from this many many years ago and it was a horrid time. but thankfully I found my way back.

Young girls especially should be able to find these words and take them to heart. It is a long, slow healing process and one that keeps those who suffer on guard.

I am glad to see more emphasis on more normal, healthy models. Often what gets described as "plus sized" looks normal to me. That is probably my remaining complaint for how things are going. Why call normal looking women "plus sized"

I don't agree with criminalizing skinny people either. The process of deliberately eating fewer calories than you need to thrive every day (2000 or so) should never be done or condoned.
