My Anorexic journey..from helpless to hopeful

Alone I lived inside my head, Never wanting to leave my bed

On the outside so strong and tough, but inside never good enough

I spent each moment wrapped in fear, afraid of looking in the mirror

What power it had over me, It’s reflection was my enemy

My bones were not distinct enough,my stomach still too round

I weighed my worth in numbers, and hated every pound

My body ached from hunger and I relished in the pain

This war I fought within myself was driving me insane

I finally hit my bottom,like none I’d hit before

I couldn’t stand to live a life so painful anymore

“Please somebody help me!” I shouted every word

But my prayers went unanswered, my pleas were never heard

Waiting lists went on for years and fees were just too high

My future looking grimmer,my life was slipping by

But way out in the distance, though my eyes did strain to see

The light of hope was flickering and calling out to me

Then from out of nowhere, like a miracle to me

Someone handed me a number and I called immediately

I met a group of people who really understood

and helped me face the issues that alone I never could

It’s up to me to live my life the best I can each day

Or give in to the madness and waste it all away.
