Acceptance


You can't wear short dresses I was told
You cannot eat too much my family would scold.
Lose weight if you want to look beautiful
My chubby site to them was pitiful.
I cried and cried till no more tears were left to cry
My only wish was to peacefully die.
Fat,ugly and useless were the words used to describe me
Oh why can't the world just let me be?
I love myself the way I am
Why is it so difficult for the world to understand?
I don't want to fit into their defination of hot
I'm proud of the curves I've got.
Yes I've been body shamed my whole life
With self love and confidence I have survived.
Their acceptance shall never bother me again
God bless their judgemental souls,Amen!
