    The girl in the mirror
    I looked in the mirror one day and I no longer recognised me
    I saw a stranger staring back, why did it take me so long to see
    How did I get there I don’t know , I couldn’t tell you why
    I can’t tell you how many tears I cried or times I vowed to try
    So many heartless comments from strangers on the street
    So many excuses made to friends who I was meant to meet
    I didn’t wanna be the girl with the pretty face, but shame about her size
    Or to cover up in baggy clothes trying so hard to disguise
    I wanted to be the gorgeous girl to stand out in the crowd
    Not hide my head in shame or be unable to laugh out loud
    But if I’d never looked in that mirror if I’d never seen the real me
    I’d have never felt the desperation or shame and turned to C.D
    I was unhappy and alone and no longer knew where to turn
    Now I’ve found my way and so many lessons I’ve begun to learn
    I’ve learnt to love me the person I’ve learnt not to shy away
    I’ve learnt I have the power to change and take things day by day
    I’ve learned that Food is not my friend nor my enemy in life
    It doesn’t make the days brighter or take away the strife
    It’s like a vicious circle that will never ever end
    Until you realise food is fuel not your enemy or your friend

    FANTASTIC poem ! I think everyone can relate to it and it would be good to refer to when those food cravings start !
