Show Them Who I Am

I often hide

behind a false identity.

They think I'm boring,

because they don't know anything.

If they could only see me

for who I truly am.

But I won't allow it,

because sadly, I'm too fat.

My weight and body image,

it's my worst enemy.

It's always been this way.

My parents never supported me,

always ridiculed me,

and now here is the result.

I hope that one day I could gain back confidence,

and show them who I am.
