Bad Poem (TW ED)

How do you continue when you're tired

How do you go on
When you can't get the nutrition you need into your body how do you consecrate that
Confectualise it
Con-script it? I don't know I just know I'm tired all the time. I'm honing myself into what I want to be I'm whittling down my body into something harder and tougher than the Bulimia Glands that have lived in my cheeks for two decades
God I want to be tough
God I want to be strong enough to scowl under my mask at a man who wolf-whistles me
I want to be sculpted from marble is that too much?
I want to be Lilith and Alexander
Granite
Granted
It takes work it takes work.

Which body will I wake up in tomorrow?Β 
Because that will dictate breakfast lunch and dinner.

But my parents are proud of me and I am alive. Which is both miraculous and terrifying.

Your use of alliteration in this poem really helps to drive the points of this subject - and this part here really stands out for me:

I want to be sculpted from marble is that too much?
I want to be Lilith and Alexander
Granite
Granted
It takes work it takes work.


Well done and reaching - ty for sharing this.

I can relate on multiple levels. This piece of expressive art is beautiful. The basis of the music i write myself is mostly that of expressing hardship and pain. When we can express struggles, i believe it can really help others who struggle.
Thank you for this πŸ–€

Sometimes I think of it that way --"Well, survived another year! F you obstacles"
That sounds oh so challenging tho, condolences.
