"I just want to be skinny"

Baby, but you think skinny is the bottom of the toilet bowl, with a finger down your throat.

You think skinny is sacrificing the chicken and potato on your dinner plate

Or doing sit-ups ‘till your sick.

You think skinny is the non-existence between your thighs and the hollows of your cheeks.

But little do you know that the bones that stretch your skin don’t measure your self-worth or the beauty that lies within.
