`beautiful - Poem by Tiffanie Lein

Wakes at five to head for a run
She does three miles each morn
And dusk, before & after the sun
Till beads of sweat adorn

The day, she chews ever so hardly
Purges hunger with water
Consume nothing, but hunger so madly
Consuming: the thirst for slender

Her clothes in it most men glance twice
But do they know what's under?
To them, a'lil under will suffice
But what about much deeper?

Pity, only the rare'll perceive
The merit that is underneath

    Tiffany This is very sad, but so many females particularly, try to look like skeletons through their lack of self worth. You explained it so well in this piece. Very well done! Karin Anderson (Report)Reply
