I'm trying so hard to fit in, But the pressure is high to be masculine. I go to the gym everyday For at least 4 hours - that's the way to keep on losing all of this weight. I can't remember the last time that I ate.
Water fasts, laxatives, diuretics galore, This is an illness no one should ignore.
1 stone, 2 stone, 3 stone gone, Nothing left for my body to live on. But nobody listened when I asked for help in this, Because I am a male my struggles with anorexia went amiss.
I became dangerously underweight, My organs began to fail - now I know my fate.
A poem based on male anorexia and how society often misses the signs with male suffers.
