“don’t let anyone, ever, make you feel like you don’t deserve what you want.”

beauty upon a delicate creature 

innocent young brown-eyed girl 

perfection bestowed in every feature 

every fishers’ catch, shining pearl 


perfect from day one

yet she couldn’t see

skinny must be done

perfect then she’ll be


the world was her oyster 

everything granted within smile


yet beauty was a destroyer 

sudden death of a child 


sold the devil her soul

fantasy turned to reality 

one’s life desirable goal 

perfect she’ll finally be


deceived by image in mirror 

years of starvation to the bones

glass of ugliness suddenly clearer 

lost completely from her homes 


harmful inability to love 

all of the world but herself 


time revealed a life

truly better than this 


repetitive periods of recovery 

one’s wish irreversible

beauty uplifted the misery 

weight eventually stable 


one thousand four hundred sixty days 

hidden silent all these years 

one thousand four hundred sixty ways 

held back brown eyed tears 


her name was sydney rose 

the girl who suffers with anorexia

recovery - the dreadful word i underwent multiple times but eventually bloomed me into a healthier and happier girl.
