Thin Me

I’ve never been quite the thin one
Never quite the sexy babe
But I never wanted to be one
For my mind is stronger
I prefer to be loved by who I am
By how my crazy mind works
Not by my waistline
Or the number on the weighing scale

So I’ve never been the thin me
Because I am,the great me!

Hal Was Lucky

She’s pretty

Because she’s skinny

She’s pretty, but

That’s what they say when she’s fat

People judge you

Social media dictates it

And we all fall into the trap

 

He’s handsome

Because he’s well-built

He’s handsome, but

That belly is too much for my taste

 

But a person is beautiful not because they are physically

They are beautiful because of how they treat people

If only we could see inner beauty first

Then all the drama of being a size zero would go away

Shallow Hal was given a gift

He was lucky enough to learn from it

 

You are beautiful

In every shape or size

Don’t let others tell you otherwise

Paper Thin

I don’t see myself that way

And I refuse to do so

To undermine myself

To hate myself

To think that won’t be lovable unless

Or I’d only be accepted until

To kill myself slowly

Just to be a size zero

I can’t

I won’t

And I refuse to be pushed to do so

To think so
