My mom says,
"You look beautiful today"
She asks "have you lost any weight honey? Here's a salad before you go to work.
You dont want to get fat"
Mom says, life is always easier for skinny girls and that I haven't had it easy so maybe my weight is the problem.
I tell her I'm comfortable.
But as I walk away, I find myself gazing into my bedroom mirror pinching at the fat on my stomach
Wishing it was nothing but paper, because then I could cut it off and maybe then I would be happy and maybe then my mom would think I was good enough.
Mom says, "those leggings aren't flattering on you. And don't you know what people will say about you if you walk around dressed like that? Hide your body. Hide your curves, the world doesn't need to see your fat seeping through those nylon pants. "
I yell back " I don't care what you think! I LIKE THEM"
Mom says "yes you do, I know you do. Now go change and come eat your salad."
I force feed myself a salad for the 5th time this week and change into a baggy sweatshirt and some sweatpants.
I want to believe that I don't care what she thinks but her words feel like bee stings prickling my entire body and no matter how many times they attack, I don't grow numb to them.
I weighed myself today, I lost 5 pounds this week but im starting to feel sick from hunger, I'm light headed.
I head downstairs, the thought of inhaling every carb we have in the kitchen because it's been 2 weeks since ive had one and the cravings are too strong.
Just as I'm about to make some pasta mom comes into the kitchen.
"You look amazing," she says.
"You're so beautiful hunny I'm so proud of you. Wait... is that pasta? What are you doing? If you eat that you'll get fat again. If you're fat you won't be happy. You can't be happy. Put that down. Here's a pill for you hunny"
Take it when you're hungry, it'll take away the cravings and surpress your appetite.
I take the stupid pills that mom seems to think work like magic and I go back up to my room, staring at this body of mine that doesn't feel like mine anymore.
I hate myself.
I hate that I want to eat carbs and I hate that I dream of sugar every night.
I hate that my mom thinks I need a pill to fix who I am, as if I am unlovable when i am not losing weight.
Even as her daughter.
Growing up, we're always taught that our mothers are our protectors...
But I realize now my mother is the reason I never feel like I'm good enough.
I never feel like I'm loveable.
Mother's are suppose to make their daughters feel beautiful and empowered.
I spent my entire childhood on a diet.
To this day, I still hear her voice in my head.
Have a salad honey.
It will be easier if you're skinny.
Change into something else.
I wonder, if this will follow me forever.
If I will always be haunted, by my mother's shame.
I promise though,
If I ever have a daughter,
I will empower her to love herself no matter what.
I will teach her that love isn't based on your waist size and neither is acceptance you can find love at 400 pounds the same way you can at 130 pounds.
I will teach her she is beautiful.
I will make sure that when she grows up, she's not afraid to touch pasta, or have a sweet.
I will teach her, no matter what, SHE IS LOVEABLE. And so are you.. And so am I... I think...

I stepped into the new city,
full of people and lights.
I got lost in it's aroma
like a toddler watching the sky.
Strolling around at night,
my eyes stumbled upon a star.
Twinkling in hues of red,
out shining the moon from afar.
The star had hair locks
that curled upon her cheeks.
With dimples playing with her smile
a little game of hide & seek.
Hand carved in delicate features,
she had a little red nose
and big round eyes full of glitters.
Wrapped in a glowing brown skin,
she looked like a gift from god
that every beating heart craved to win.
But she only came up to me,
and in no time we became friends
as if we were destined to be.
We were different,
She closed her eyes
on retro classical songs
and banging my head over EDM,
to Eminem's raps I sang along.
But yet, we had our one song
that had the beats I loved
And the lyrics she longed.
We were different,
She was the debate champion of our college
And I was seen in silent corners,
enjoying my own solace.
But yet, only I understood her words
and only she heard my silence.
Everyone said to us-
"You guys should date"
But who dared to loose someone like her
for so called another "heart break".
What happened after that?
Sitting beside me asked the little brat.
I said, she is still my soulmate
the one who heard my silence,
the one I didn't date.
It was 11:30 at night
yet with utmost curiosity
his eyes were shimmering bright.
Where is she now? he said.
I told him, I'll tell you but after that
you will go to bed.
He nodded in delight.
In my trembling voice I said,
Although her home is very far
but strolling around in night,
when your eyes stumbles upon a star.
Twinkling in hues of red,
out shining the moon from afar.
You will know, that's her.
I know, it's her.
