To anyone with an eating disorder:

I am fighting for you.
I wonder when you will realize your worth.
I hear your eating disorder wailing.
I see you taking a step towards recovery.
I want to help you get there.
I am fighting for you!

I pretend I can change the world.
I feel like I have to try.
I touch the walls to break them down.
I worry I'm not doing enough.
I cry because I know you are suffering.
I am fighting for YOU!

I understand recovery is hard.
I know that it is worth it.
I dream for your inner peace.
I try to help you find it.
I hope for healing. I pray for healing.

[We wrote "I am" poems in a group I ran recently.]
