Critics whisper, 'Too fat, too thin,'
Their voices echo, a constant din.
'Eat less, eat more,' they loudly say,
But can I ever please them, come what may?

Should I starve myself to meet their gaze?
Or embrace my form, in all its ways?
For no matter how far I run, I'll find
My true self waiting, one of a kind.

I'm imperfect, yes, but that's okay,
For beauty's more than just a physical sway.
Let's not be defined by weight or face,
But by the love we share, and the grace we embrace.

God bless our uniqueness, let it shine,
Let's live our lives, and let love be divine.
Don't let others define our worth, you see,
For we are enough, just as we are, wild and free.

It resonates deeply with me because it speaks to the universal struggle of seeking validation and beauty in a world filled with unrealistic standards and harsh criticism. The poem bravely confronts the damaging voices that tell us we're not enough, and instead chooses to embrace our unique imperfections and celebrate our individuality. It's a reminder that true beauty comes from within, and that our worth and value cannot be defined by external opinions or physical appearance. This poem is a beacon of hope and empowerment, encouraging us to break free from societal constraints and embrace our true selves with love, grace, and acceptance.
