Fat Dance

I feel fat today,
my jeans don’t fit
so I’m wearing baggy clothes
to hide the mess that’s underneath.

My belly button,
it’s a black hole
that shows a painful history
of eating, never full.

I felt fat today,
how about you?
Was there something else
that you want to feel or do?

I was fat today
but now I’m free.
Someone told me I am beautiful
and now I’m just me.

Why do I have what I have?
Scars and stretch marks make who I am.
Knives and words destroy my skin
they help me love my strengths and sins.
