Those poor girls, this poor me
trying to navigate womanhood
not knowing which way to look,
what way to be.
Thigh gaps are sexy, big is beautiful, strong is the new thin-
i’m getting whiplash with all these ways
to be comfortable in my own skin.
Do a juice cleanse, no carbs, no fat.
What if I’m fine just where I’m at?
I can dance, I can play, I can run, I can jump, so who CARES about
that silly little lump
on my thigh, or roll on my stomach?
We are beautiful, we are healthy,
we make the babies for goodness sake,
so please tell me what’s up with all this bullshit
we have to take?!
If you have a body, please show it some love and gratitude
because we haven’t gotten anywhere good
with this perfectionist attitude.
