Hey everyone... I used to write poetry all the time, mostly about love issues. I recently wrote one about being overweight and I thought I'd share...

Trapped in a prison
Will I ever be free?
The worst part is
The warden is me

Hiding inside
These self imposed walls
Wishing to be like
A Barbie Doll

Perfect and pretty
So proper and prim
Not flawed and heavy
But happy and thin

Just some of my thoughts. Feel free to critique! Have a great day everyone!

Great poem Sarah, Thanks for sharing.
I know that I often feel imprisoned by this shell of a body. One of these days my sentence will be up and I hope this is true for you as well.

The worst part is the warden is me! Wow I need to take control and set me free! Good insight.
