Maybe you can or can't relate

To carrying around so much weight

 

To be the center of stares

Wondering why everyone cares

 

I wish they could see

How this came to be

 

If they knew what I've been through

Since the time I was two

 

A father on hard drugs

No love, no hugs

 

Sent to prison two times

For committing a crime

 

My siblings and I lived with our step-mother

I was too young to know she was hitting my sisters and brother

 

My mom got custody then

As my father got out of the pen

 

We were happy for awhile

Until he went back..and we all lost our smile

 

I went to live with my little half brother, he was nine

That didn't stop the step-monster from hurting him all the time

 

The look of pain and fear on his face

I wanted to and tried, to be his saving grace

 

The adults I told said they would keep an eye on it

That didn't stop him from getting hit

 

When I started becoming suicidal

I returned to live with my dad, his new girlfriend, and her bible

 

They fought constantly, flipping tables and screaming

My sister and I in our room, tears streaming

 

My depression grew and food was all I had

It comforted me, made me not as sad

 

That only caused me to get made fun of at school

Being skinny was apparently what you needed to be cool

 

"Go eat an oreo, fatty." I heard in the halls

I went to the bathroom and cried in a stall

 

Finally, I caught a break, moved in with my mother

My dad got custody of my little brother

 

Even now, though, I don't see my own beauty

I see what they see, THEIR picture of me

 

One day I will change that

Reclaim my self-esteem that was once laughed at

 

I'm sorry that my poem was so long, 

but when I tell my story, It makes me feel strong. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Stay strong, girls <33

No need for a long winded response for such a beautiful poem. Its amazing...

“I am constantly torn between killing myself and killing everyone around me.”
