How could this happen?
It just isn't fair.
Someone should have told her, made her aware.
She was ruining her body, just to get thin.
She tried to stop, but she didn't know where to begin.
All her life she spent trying to be like the rest.
She thought she'd be popular, she thought she'd be the best.
Everyone else called her a fool.
It wasn't her fault, she wanted to be cool.
She didn't know she had a problem until it was too late.
If only she had known, she might have escaped.

I agree with this poem.. You seem to let everyone have a look at it in the victims eyes, i like it.
