No, You're beautiful.

I say ‘I’m Fat’

You say ‘ No, you’re beautiful’

I wonder Why can I not be both?  ~ Rachel Wiley. 

 

These thoughts cramp my mind every night and day. 

Why does level of attraction rely on what you weigh. 

These thoughts crush my confidence every day and night.

‘PLUS SIZE’ Models are meant to make me feel alright?

But their ‘plus size’ consists of a size ten.

The media is uncomfortable with the truth again. 

The media portrays an unrealistic woman and man, 

A representation that makes everyone feel less than. 

Why can I not be fat and beautiful as well? 

Admitting you’re fat rings complimentary alarm bells. 

‘NO, no, no! Don’t be silly you’re not fat!’

You’re stunning and gorgeous, ANYTHING but that!!’

 

I say I’m fat … you say, NO you’re beautiful …

All that you teach me is that being fat is unsuitable, Unusual.

Why can I not just be beautiful?

I just want to feel beautiful. 

 

I say I’m fat.. 

you say, No.

You’re so much more. ~ Rachel Wiley.

      Girls got mad poetic skills! :D. What an awesomely honest and vulnerable piece. Fantastic work.

      There's just so much more to explore in life than the vanity of other people's appearances. People can get caught in that obsessive bubble for their entire lives, these media corporations have got people chasing the dangling carrot of perfection, but it doesn't exist...it ain't real. You have to admire them though, for the sheer magnitude of the merciless brainwashing they carry out on billions of vulnerable woman and men too, which they 'cleverely' disguise in a bubblegum pink fun loreal advert, "because you're worth it"...' oh wow!..shampoo huh..I'm worth shampoo..gee..thanks!' They know what they're doing and they're very good at it and they will never ever care how you feel, they only care wether or not you buy.

      You just keep on being yourself, which is all any of us can do, besides..everyone else is taken :D.

        You bring me more smiles then you'll ever know, I'm glad you enjoyed as always. You're so right, they've mastered the art of making people insecure which leads to people reaching for their products! Lovely to hear from you! ~ E

          Those that think they know do not know anything,.
          Beauty is within people all you need to do to see their beauty is look into their hearts through their eyes.

          Just sent this to my size 18 queen
          I'm 30ich and very lean

          I've not had many relationships over the years, 3 or 4 serious maybe the same again when just dating to see if it works. I can tell you for certain that she is the most comfortable one in her body!

          Sure she goes to her fat club (her words) but a bit of extra weight is the only problem she has and is take that any day over the mountains of problems others have.

          You're beautiful soul can be felt on every poem you share, you and others like you are what everyone needs in this world. Size matters like skin matters or age at the end of the day we are all on the same page.

          Really liked reading this, thanks ;)
