Only You

I'll never be a size eight

Or smaller for that matter

And I've come to terms with that.

I've embraced myself

For who I am,

Genetics and all.

It never really bothered me.

What does it matter

The size of your clothes?

When in the end

It's your shoes

People have to fill?

And I was happy

Knowing I was happy

Just the way I am.

But you ruined that.

And I hate that you could.

I hate that with a word

You cut me to pieces.

(You're wearing that?)

I hate that with a look

You make me doubt.

I hate that after all the people,

All the insults,

All the fights,

All the 'friends'

That I've had

It's only ever you

That could leave me hollow.

That could falter my smile.

And I hate

Hate

That after all the people,

All the insults,

All the fights,

All the 'friends'

I've ever had

It's only ever been you

That struck a chord

That could leave me so insecure

Only you, Dad

Only you.
