First they said, "all bodies are beautiful,"
Then they said, "here's how to dwindle, here is how you wither". 
They say, "this is  how to get smaller and smaller
smaller and smaller
smaller and smaller..."
Am I big or am I thin? Should it matter, does it matter? You made it matter! Did you have to make my size mean something? 

Please, I am not my skin.

    Wow! I was reading this and I am just so blown away. It is such a.. I don't even know how to describe this piece. I don't think I have ever read anything like this, and it is just amazing.

    This is really powerful - especially the diction in this sentence “here's how to dwindle, here is how you wither" and the repetition. Very very powerful.
