I Am

You are not entitled to comment on my body or my face.
It allows me to get from place to place.
You do not get to get to me.
I am happy with my personality.

I am me and I let the people that I trust guide me.
Not just anybody.
And certainly not someone fueled by jealousy
and feelings of comparative inadequacy.

I am sorry if you're hurting but do self-therapy.
Do not- I repeat- do not take it out on me.
Can't you see that you're not helping yourself
when you're just hurting me?

I once bought into the bullshit and lies-
made myself go hungry because I hated my thighs.
But now I'm focused on being healthy
so don't you dare criticize my body.

It makes me feel sad that I see myself in a suit
and think that I am fat.
And though I try not to be bitter,
You had a part in that.

But the fact is that I accept my body and validate myself.
I am valid- not because I think I am- but because it is good for my health.

If You Forget Me
