I'm trying to get me this beach body.
I'm trying to become bay watch bearible.
But instead I find myself being called a beached whale,
asking if i need help getting my fat body back to the water.
They don't realize that that's what I crave the most,
where I am able to be free,
floating on the calm water,
rather than deal with the torturous waves crashing down on me.
Depression-like storms crashing over my head dragging me down,
suffocating me 60 feet underwater choking me unconscious.
As if a single tear is from being called a name,
where sticks and stones break bones, but names aren't suppose to hurt.
No, they don't, but they push you over the edge, into the abyss of suicidal thoughts,
of self doubt and self harm, with no return until you are either drugged and hospitalized or dead.
As if fitting in and belonging means making someone else feel left out and alone.
Where causing someone enough pain makes them want to go home, into the white clouds early.
It's as if they crave the need to hurt someone to feel some sort of self worth,
when really, they're digging their own grave,
The only difference is that I, will be in mine before they are in theirs.
Only when I am dead, will they realize their mistakes.
Im trying to get me this beach body.
That J-lo tan, that Emma Watson look-a-like, Jennifer Lawrence self confidence,
But at the end of the day, I find myself not wanting it,
not needing, craving, trying to get the look every girl is suppose to have.
Because in the end it's pointless,
I'll still have my scars,
Even if nobody can see them.
The feeling of being a loser,
Even if nobody cares.
The wounds from the first try still haunting me,
where it gets to the point that I know even if I did change,
new names will be thought of,
new jokes to crack,
new self confidence to break,
new laughs joining in on the fun.
In the end I don't like it,
can't do it,
don't need it,
don't want it,
I'm no longer trying to get me that,
