Shame (This Is More Than Weight Lost And Found; It Is Of Self Lost Pound By Pound.) - Poem by Karen Nivens

A silent voice hides behind eyes that haunt
But condemning thoughts are heard and they taunt.

She lost so much weight not so long ago
How could she stop and just let herself go?

There are no answers just a need to hide,
But how do you escape from those eyes inside

The person who instigates so much blame
For that person is me, living in shame.
