Anorexia

you're with me everywhere i go
you tell me you're my friend
you slowly kill me everyday
but i try to pretend that you
are here to help me
you'll bring me my friends and fame
if you gain full control
a grave will bear my name
i am an puppet on a string
and you are the puppetear
you control my every move
you fill my soul with fear
each day as you get stronger
you leave no time for friends
you tell me i must exercise
the torture never ends
my mind is like a dust storm
i can't think when your so strong
and when i try to fight you
you tell my that im wrong to think that you will leave me
you say you'll never go
and i dont want you to live
and i dont want you to know
you'll tell me i'm superior
because now i am thin
but what you never told me
what matters lies with in
with help from all my loved ones
i've learned that this is true
they love me for the bethany inside
and so i dont need you
anorexia your worthless
and i just want you to know
that im ready to recover ready to let you go

    Anorexia is a serious problem that has claimed several young lives. I'm glad you have seen it for what damages it can cause you and your family. This poem should enlighten many.
