    Confidence shattered, pride left in tatters
    Since you left I've always second guessed me
    Deep depression is messin with my mind
    No longer pretty, used to think I was a dime
    Almond shaped eyes that used to seduce
    Now refuse to see my true beauty and identity
    Mirrors lie telling me my size 14 frame has not been mantained
    But somehow this cannot be, my 'skinny' jeans still fit
    Skirts still hug my curves just right and not to tight
    So why then do I see myself as a size 23?

    Self image destroyed from constant pressure to be
    what I can never be...size 3
    You were supposed to be by my side
    But you turned out to be just another enemy
    For you I bent over backwards, stuck fingers down my throat
    Even tried to deny myself the food needed to grow
    I didn't realize a true man wouldn't worry about
    The size of my thighs or the curve in my sides
    He would care about my health and how I survived

    So now looking in the mirror reflecting on the
    Chinky dull puffy eyed not so pretty me
    I wonder why I couldn't just be me
    Your betrayal left me Broken and in Pieces
    But now I know the reasons was just your decievings
    You were never attracted to me
    It was just the way my butt looked in some jeans.

    and your heart is pure as water life ya head back up high
    and walk unto that new wave of love and be all u can be .
