The crown didn’t fit,
And the dress was too tight,
Her buttons popped open,
With a new rip in sight.

Body Image •

I wave my arms,
and see the fat flaps,
why can't I just say hi?
and feel normal perhaps.

Body Image •

I'm just looking forward to the day,
when I stop counting calories.
~ then i'll know i'm happy.

Body Image •

I looked in the mirror
and the reflection of the piggy bank;
mocked my body,
snorting and grunting,
at the fat I couldn't lose.

Body Image •

there are lines and curves on my body
that I know you want to see,
but I know i'll never have.

Body Image •

my favorite jeans
no longer caressed my waist,
and the kangaroo pouch
took its place.
