    Thank you mum
    For all those bitter words you had thrown to me
    For all those years of criticising my body weight
    For all those years of comparing me with your best friend's daughter
    For all those years of calling me ugly, fat and stupid
    Thank you
    And yes
    It hurts me
    But I'll pretend it didn't
    It slowly kills me
    But It's okay
    You told me that I'm better off dead
    It suffocates me
    But I'll pretend that I'm fine
    Thank you Mum
    Thank you
    Day by day
    I feel like an anchor
    Slowly
    Sinking deep beneath the ocean
    What's the point of staying strong
    When your own family is breaking you down?
