To Paraphrase John Legend


Many people like to judge others,

Because they're afraid to themselves be judged.

They are terrible bothers,

All because they're afraid their own bodies are too pudged.


I disagree with that flawed logic,

What matters is what's in your soul.

We can't change what is biologic,

So why hate what is out of anyone's control?


I truly love my body,

(To paraphrase John Legend) With all of it's perfect imperfections.

And if I were to be judged by anybody,

I would pity them, because they have their own self-hating internal afflictions.


So don't be afraid of what others may think.

Come out of your shell.

Love yourself in order to get back in sync,

With your deeply hidden self-love that previously treated you so well.
