I can hear my heart beat louder each night
My heart is drowning from these judgments
The tears became more frequent each night
“You need to lose weight”
That’s every day I hear each day
I crawl up inside each time
This body I have I wish would go a way
Deep inside I know their right
I swear I’m trying
Attempt after attempt
Failure after failure
Why can’t I be left alone?
Why I can’t be small?
Why can’t I be accepted?
Are questions I ask myself?
I’m sorry I can’t be who you’ll want me to be
I’m sorry I have to be who I am
But I’ll be me because that’s all I know
