The Curves That I Have

The media is killing me slowly

But I always have a choice

I will not go down the path of wishing to be as thin as a stick

They don’t have the curves that I have

I am beautiful inside and out

I feel comfortable in my own skin

I do not wish to be someone else

Because I am unique

Beauty is not gauged by one’s waistline

The media feeds this false information

To make one feel like an abomination

And sell their good for nothing lies

 

I refuse to be controlled by society

Because I know I am beautiful

In my own way

In whatever shape or form I may be

So they can keep to themselves and I will keep to mine

What with the curves that I have

They simply can’t compete with me

Fruit Basket

I took the lemon from the apple tree

Planted it and grew a banana

Slowly it turned into a watermelon

Which was no surprise

But it yielded a strawberry too

Which was just dandy

It grew tall and

Pineapples started to fall

And then grapes turned violet red

What a tree was that lemon

The one I took from the apple tree

Skin And Bones

Tall, dark and nothing but bones

A skeleton walking

Beats a dead man who tells tales

 

Beautiful! They say

But all I see is a hungry zombie

Famine seems to have struck it

Drought has absorbed all the water it had within

 

Worse, most people want to be like them

Most people want me to be like them

Others have been played and their mind wasted

They fall into the pit of doom

where nothing but skin and bones reign

 

Skin and bones,

Skin and bones,

Do you really want to be like one?

The answer should be easy

I’m On A Diet

you can’t tempt me

I will never indulge

will never give in

and gain back the bulge

I will do what I can to keep it off

you can’t bring me down

not now, not ever

I’m going to win the crown

I have what it takes and will beat the odds

you’ll see I’ll be healthier

leaner and better

and will never be bigger……again

however, with chocolates, that’s different

ice cream, muffins and cake

Oh! I told you I will never be tempted

so give me some of those for goodness sake!
