A Fall From Grace


I wanted to share a poem I wrote a while back about my own experience with an eating disorder. This is my experience in my own words. This is raw, rough and real.





A Fall From Grace


In a world where I felt so small,

So small that everything and everyone seemed so tall.

I felt like I was stuck in the middle of a huge crowd.

A crowd that forced me to live in the shadow.

A Shadow that felt so narrow.

I couldn’t think, eat or sleep.

I was consumed by the darkness in one big sweep.

After a while I learned to live within this darkness by controlling what I had to eat.

Being in control of this one thing made me feel like I wasn’t so small after all.

Little did I know I was heading for a great big fall.

A fall from grace to grave,

If I didn’t accept that I had a problem and a big choice to make.

Making the wrong choice would result in my fate.

For I chose to fight,

For I chose to eat,

For I chose to live.

Thank you for reading.


Take care of your beautiful self.


Love, Kimmy xoxx
