' Born to Be Beautiful Defended'

' Born to Be Beautiful Defended'
I know people went on their rant
about my poem 'Born to Be Fat'.
Well let me say and defend,
I write first hand my unknown friend.

Who gave you the right to decide
for a person whose tired of the fight.
The fight to look skinny and to fit in,
tired of going to the health center and the gym.

Tired of the media and the fake looking ads,
of some of the skinny models on Prozac.
Now, tell me, tell me,
have you ever been attacked?

Attacked for being fat?
Now 'fat' is the 'protection'
for a lot of souls,
who knowingly incarnate

with fat as their goal.
Now you tell me can you
control karma too?
are you God/Goddess who

thinks it through?
I don't think so,
because there's
more written in the skies,

Accept everyone's karma
and say 'no' to an 'eye for an eye'.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
