Mind Over Matter

The reflection in the mirror defies me
My body undermines me
My head and my stomach never agree
Fat or thin, must have a label
Starting to dread the dinner table
A place of guilt, I am never free

Sometimes I'm so proud
Rebelling tall and loud
Society's binding rules
Other times, so forlorn
Within myself I'm torn
My mind can be so cruel
I can't make up my mind
The truth I'll never find
As long as I'm still here
The resounding noise in my head
That tiny voice I dread
But it's the only one I hear
