There is an emotion called “fat”,
It is what happens to you,
When people say, you have put on weight,
‘Oh look at you, better shed the flesh’.
‘Oh my, someone’s been indulging,’
‘Oh, don’t be upset, this is for your own good’,
‘What a pretty face you have,
In vain, all that beauty.’
‘If you only can be more careful,’
‘Oh no, that dimple is gone,
Fat affects your smile they say,
Now the best part of you is gone.’
It’s what happens when they tell you,
You need to take care of your body,
They measure you with the magazine tapes,
‘Oh, your waist line; what a shame’!
The parties you hate to go to,
Because people are going to judge you,
“Are you ok, stress is bad for weight loss’
‘Depressed are you?’
‘You will have to do more to keep up,
Women need to maintain themselves, ,
Men like that about you.
A beautiful woman; a perennial muse.’
‘Seriously’, your fat screams out,
Leave me alone, my husband takes me with my fat,
‘Now now; don’t get so upset about it,
You’d find some inspiration no doubt.’
My three kids are all below five; give me a break,
‘Didn’t want to ask you before,
But why did you have so many kids and so close,
It’s difficult to manage, you know.’
So fat grows, and expands,
Like yeast to flour,
The dough is just right to be baked,
This emotion called “fat”, now wants to crack,
And make a mess of the place.
Heated up from head to toe,
Scream, shout and explode,
How dare they! Terrible etiquette they say.
Fat is fat; quite straightforward it is,
It is roundy and curvy, voluptuous and busty,
Sexy, juicy luscious, and also quite luxurious,
If you choose to see it that way.
Cheesecakes in butterscotch and double cream,
The peanut butter and chocolate spread,
Mayonnaise in the healthiest salad,
The cheddar, the steak, the cocktails.
This emotion of “fat” is tricky,
It alters the mood of many,
An emotion so close to the heart,
As the image of self decides the love for self.
Respect and honour for thy body,
No, I’m not fat with you; you meant well old lady,
But you press the wrong buttons at times,
With your version of beauty and grace.
Forgive I do, forget I not.
I shall be careful with thee,
Leave me alone, once and for all,
My fat is beautiful to me.
