Standing from across the store
You stare at me as if you haven’t any
Other place to look at anymore.
You make faces at me in disgust
You make me feel uncomfortable
In every place that I go and
My feelings feel unjust.
In my mind and heart
I’m not a bad person
Just overweight and oversized to be exact
I have needs
I have feelings in fact.
Others like you don’t know what it’s like
Mocked and shuffled to the side
As if we have no place here to coincide.
I’m tired of trying to defended my space
Here on earth
I used to put every bit of strength I had
To fight the snickering
Bickering about me being FAT
For what it was worth.
Realizing it’s a waste of my time and people
Who stare from across the room
Have something deeper than the looks of I
Disturbing their narrow minds.
I found that through this ordeal
That’s had me down
I am a beautiful individual and
This life has turned me around
To see all the things they don’t
And won’t see.
I am a beautiful individual
Mastered by the creator
He’s helped me in so many ways that
I’ve survived something
Sent from evil
Now I’m okay
I have the
Best care possible because
I am truly blessed.
