The world is full of many people,
each one is unique and beautiful.
Still here we stand facing a world where Skinny is the image.
I ask myself "What are you?" when I look in the mirror.
I look and see a plus size young woman,
I see what the world says is ugly.
"Look at you, go run and hide no one wants to see your face."
Words are words my mother says,
yet here I stand with tears on my face.
So I try and try to lose the weight,
but get a slap in my face.
Nothing works and hope is lost,
a sadness takes place its place.
"I know you hear these words"
Young women I hear you cryin,
for I know your pain.
We conform to a society that has no true name.
Listen to these words and throw away your shame!
You are a beautiful woman and the words they speak are a lie.
Society can not hold me any more.
The words of hate stop here and now for I refuse to listen.
I am a plus sized woman who is beautiful and fierce.
I am what I make myself and not what I hear.
Stand strong and Proud and Fight!
My body and mind are my own.
