Poem I wrote

No Satan
I hear you calling out to me!
You want back into to my life again, the answer is a strong No!
You have brought unhappiness; anxiety and having me lose the weight!
Even that wasn’t enough for you, begged for more weight off me!
To the point that I was looking unhealthy and Miriam was getting worried about me to the point of hospitalization!
I turned my back from you then and doing again!
I have people in my life that love me and want the best for me!
In July, you are getting thrown off the Dragster again at Cedar Point!
I ripped you away from me; I will do what I have to keep you away from me!
So go away and stay away and quit with your temptations!
I don’t want to be doing those things anymore! I am pro-recovery not pro-ED!
