    Drowning in imperfection,
    Suffocating in self-hate.
    Her image staring back at her.
    Each rib outlined with paper white skin,
    her collar bones like those of a victim.
    A victim not of drought, of famine, of war
    but a victim of herself.
    Her mind's whispering voices,
    changing the colour in her eyes.
    A deep golden brown,
    to empty,
    to nothing.
