Yes and No

Yes, in fact I do know that I’m fat

No, I don’t plan to change for you

Yes, I plan to lose the weight someday, but if you think I owe it to you to do so, then you will never get the satisfaction of holding my hand.

Yes, I’m aware that you think I am mean

No, I don’t care 

Yes, I would rather lose you then to allow you to cut me open. I would rather lose you than put poisons in my body. I would rather lose you.

Yes, I know how good I am at losing

No, that doesn’t mean I want to win you over

Yes I am sure and when I say no I mean no, it is not a suggestion of my apprehension it is a promise of my aversion. You do not own me, nor will you ever know me. I am the writer of my own story, the sculptor of my own life, and what kind of artist would I be if I changed a single thing for someone like you.

This poem is about: 



wow. good, don't change for anyone.
