I am over-weight
and thats bad, right?
Is it so bad to have a constant place for people to run for warmth and comfort.
For me, a hug is all I need to give to make someone feel better
yet all my life I have been told that it is bad and it has forced insecurities about myself on me,
but without my warmth, a friend may have never known me, i couldnt comfort someone after the lose of a parent,
without it, i would not be me because the most comforting thing is a hug, and with my body comes warmth.
taking away my weight would take away a shelter for friends.
People try to shame me for my body, until, of course, they need a hug or they feel cold,
because to them, i only need to be big when its convinient.
Well I say no.
this is what make me, this body has infinately contributed to making me who I am.
So where some would define me as a dark skinned teenager that is fat,
i define myself as a dark skinned teenager that is Warm.
