Am I Skinny Enough?

A battle rages, hour by hour,

𝑨 𝒔𝒊𝒍𝒆𝒏𝒕 𝒘𝒂𝒓, 𝒇𝒐𝒖𝒈𝒉𝒕 𝒅𝒆𝒆𝒑 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉𝒊𝒏,

Where whispers of doubt and fear begin.

A soul is trapped, struggling alone,

𝑨 𝒅𝒂𝒏𝒄𝒆 𝒘𝒊𝒕𝒉 𝒅𝒆𝒎𝒐𝒏𝒔, 𝒂 𝒄𝒐𝒏𝒔𝒕𝒂𝒏𝒕 𝒇𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕,

As darkness consumes, day and night.

Her spirit shines, though it feels so wrong,

𝑺𝒉𝒆'𝒔 𝒏𝒐𝒕 𝒅𝒆𝒇𝒊𝒏𝒆𝒅 𝒃𝒚 𝒏𝒖𝒎𝒃𝒆𝒓𝒔 𝒐𝒓 𝒔𝒊𝒛𝒆,

Her worth transcends what meets the eyes.

She struggles to find the strength to break the clash,

𝑬𝒎𝒃𝒓𝒂𝒄𝒆 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒋𝒐𝒖𝒓𝒏𝒆𝒚, 𝒔𝒆𝒆𝒌 𝒕𝒉𝒆 𝒍𝒊𝒈𝒉𝒕,

Unveil the beauty, fierce and bright.

For healing comes when truth is stirred,

With love and support, she'll find the way,

𝑻𝒐 𝒂 𝒑𝒍𝒂𝒄𝒆 𝒘𝒉𝒆𝒓𝒆 𝒔𝒆𝒍𝒇-𝒂𝒄𝒄𝒆𝒑𝒕𝒂𝒏𝒄𝒆 𝒉𝒐𝒍𝒅𝒔 𝒔𝒘𝒂𝒚.

    I used to be borderline anorexic before but not anymore. Loved your poem!
