Deepest Desires


Why is it so hard for people to see

That all I want is a thinner me

Tons of weight I need to lose

It's my life and I'll do what I choose

Delicious foods I will not eat

Exercising on my bleeding feet

My favorite foods how they love to taunt

But a skinny body is all I want

Why can't people see that

My body is plump and fat

I hate my body this way

My family I must betray

I will not rest until I reach my goal

So that my body doesn't resemble that of a troll

I love my family and friends

But they won't bring my cycle to an end
