On My Way
by: Anonymous

I sit and think
I am so confused
I don't know what to do
now that I know what I can lose

I want back my body
I want back my mind
Known to be happy
and known to be kind

Scared and unsure
is how I feel
The voices in my head
are spinning like a wheel

I want to feel loved
I want people to care
not to be talked about
or have people stare

I wish they understood
I wish I knew what to do
I want to be myself
and start anew

I don't want to feel this sorrow and pain
I don't want to be scared of the weight I should gain

I want to go out
not stay in alone
but I don't want them to see
the size that I've grown

I sit and plan what is my next meal
then I dread of how it will make me feel

I am hungry and eat
but then begin to fret
I feel guilty and more than that, regret

"You are too skinny"
"Why don't you eat?"
These are things
they are starting to repeat

I want to look in the mirror
and see the true me
and look so much deeper
than my body

To just be myself and now worry at all
that would help me up from this one great fall

My optimism remains
I will recover
It's going to stop coming back
and I'll be better forever
