I Can't Eat It

©

Published by Family Friend Poems April 2011

The food is all around.
I can't eat it.
They are watching.
They will call me a pig.
They will call me fat.
I refuse to eat,
At least here.
Too many people
Watching,
Staring.
I need to be alone.
Alone at last,
I feast...
Chips,
Candy,
Ice cream,
and pop...
something with lots of carbonation,
it tasted good, but I need to do something.
Run to the bathroom.
Turn on the sink alone.
Up it all comes.
You wonder why I won't eat,
I pick at my food,
and why I have lost so much weight...
yet I see me as
FAT...
A PIG.
