I watch myself dance,

and I don’t see elegance

All the other girls are better than me

and they must be judging my movements

Is this my imaginary audience,

or reality?

A thought crosses my mind

What if I lack elegance

because I'm too skinny?

It seems true.

All the other girls have fat on their bodies except me

If only I ate more,

perhaps I would look better

But I don’t want to eat my feelings

Do I hide from this truth?

The truth that says I move mysteriously,

due to my body?

Or do I ignore it?


maybe it doesn't mater how I look

just how I feel.
