Does it Matter?


People talking, looking away, disgust.

I walk the hall hurt, confused, depressed.

She's anorexic that or bulimic! 

I'm not!

Teachers hear and try to talk, I ignore.

They want to help but it’s not true.

I eat , I’m healthy, normal just everyone else.

My friends save me.

Talk to me, defend me when made fun of.

I’m skinny its ok, I’m happy.

Their bored, jealous, lonely.

I Stand Up For Me! 

I laugh and ignore what they say.

I won’t listen I'll stand up for me.

No more Rumors.

Rumors won’t control me anymore!
