hand up, raw admission, who's that? (090808)

I’m twenty-six and I’ve got cellulite
fit, strong, healthy
injury-ridden
recovered anorexic
with balls of fat nestling her hamstrings
live on a shoestring
policy over salary
pain inside perfection
I tried to kill myself
again.
It’s picture perfect though, huh?
The one they all want to be see use abuse
Own me
what rights do I have?
I’ve been to angry but I didn’t fit in
couldn’t relate
couldn’t corroborate
ideas
Invisible, but I cant hide.

Artist's Description

this isn’t finished – but it’s been sat not-finished for a couple of weeks and I’m not sure it’ll ever go any further – don’t want to share but do, don’t want to admit but do, don’t it to be true but…

if i could rewrite history would it be different? maybe – but then I guess it’s me, flaws and all, and maybe I wouldn’t change it

for all the tough bits, there are magic moments too – I wouldn’t change me but sometimes that’s so hard to swallow
