Ana

As my bones began to show
My hunger faded
Until I did not recognize my own reflection
Ana praised me and she encouraged me
To make the number on the scale lower
She was in control
Where was I?
The happy girl I once knew
A skeleton with sad eyes stared back at me
If Ana’s voice could be silenced then I would stop
I knew I was hurting myself but her voice was so strong
Then one day came where all my strength was gone
And I realized she was wrong
I decided to fight her because she could not teach me
To love myself
Only I could choose to love all of me
It is still a battle to this day
But my bones no longer show
And I do not believe Ana’s lies
