Zoe, Age 12, Phoenix, AZ
                      You heard them say it
Whether they meant for you to hear
or not
You did
How could one person be this mean?

The girl who called you fat?
She’s anorexic herself
“You’re too fat”
Her mom told her that one
“Are you really going to eat all that?”
It was her dad this time

The girl who called you fat?
Today her mom starved her
But it didn't matter
she wasn't going to eat anyway

The girl who called you fat?
She started seeing a counsellor
Her family apologized
and tomorrow
She’s going to apologize to you

Tomorrow is now today
If only she wasn't too late
If only she had told you a day earlier
If only she knew how much it hurt you
If only
you were still here
