Mental Health Matters, Part Two: Hunger Strike

Filed under: poetry — Tags: , , — Sunflower Skins @ 10:52 pm

As promised, part two of our series, a short poem about anorexia. Being skinny is a dream that too many people believe will solve the deep sadness; many members of my family, including myself, and too many friends have struggled with that belief as well. May you find hope beyond self-harm. For free books about bulimia, please see Feed The Whales.
