Mom puts 7 year old on diet
Later in life she becomes anorexic:
"Fat people have better personalities"
Mirrors surround me every day
from the second I wake up in the morning.
There is my own face staring back at me.
Do I like what I see?
They talk about people all the time,
Wondering how they got to be the way they are,
as if there is some method to this 'disgrace',
as if this was done purposely.
People stare at you wherever you go,
and judge you by what they immediately see.
Like they understand it,
like they wouldn't make the same 'mistakes'.
You may be a smoker,
or you may be dumb,
or you may be sick inside,
but your clothing hide your faults.
But she, whenever she puts food in her mouth,
they all nod their heads sagely and say,
"oh, so that is why she is so big.
If only she could control herself."
Lucky you get to hide your faults,
while my "defects" are glaring and obvious,
and exposed for the world to see
and judge every day.
