I look in the mirror
and all I can focus on
are the ever-so-slight bulges
around my hips.
They look at me
and all they can focus on
is the size tag in my jeans
and they say
"your wrists look like sticks,
you must be anorexic."
All I want in the world
is for someone to tell me
I'm alright how I am.
To tell me that
I am not fat
I am not skinny
I am just me
and that is just fine.
