Skinny Taste, Taste Skinny

Updated on June 24, 2015

Looking deeper

Why can't I be skinnier
Maybe stop eating
but I can't do that
Its too unhealthy
I think my gut is too big

But I don't have enough to lose it.

Why can't I be like her
You can see her slimness
I am quick to judge myself
Then I stuff myself
Because I'm slow to see any good
Or beauty n my reflection


Why can't I be skinny!
With no handles to touch on
A pretty young thing to look at
And maybe more to speak to
I used to be like that
But not anymore it seems
She has no visible fat
Her stomach is nice and flat
Its not something I see in me
Especially when the mirror does its job


Why can't I be just skin
My bones a little more visible
Gaunt but with shape
Yes that's what I want
Maybe this will be my last meal
Just for today
Maybe I won't reflect.

Just for today, maybe

the mirror

won't

work!

      Thanks Nell, even though this is an older hub, the bad feelings from when I wrote that poem still lingers sometimes. I'm still working on that tummy though. lol

      I'm sure that you are beautiful, and I don't even know what you look like.

      Thank you for the encouragement. I think you'll be happy to hear that this was actually written over two years ago, after I had just given birth and was dealing with the baby weight. Now i'm not longer that stuck on my weight. But I will have to remember the BEAUTY saying. Thanks again.

      I never will understand why women torture themselves over the way they look in the mirror.

      Beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

      The media portrays beauty as a slim ,petite woman, which is what influences many young girls to believe that it's beauty.

      When you look in the mirror remember that word,

      B- Brains

      e-extrordinary

      a-attitude

      u undeniable

      t-totally

      y-yourself

      Real beauty comes from within.
