They say I’m fat,
oh, I don’t do weight’s math.
Yes, I don’t care!

They say my nose’s flat,
oh, and I have bulky butt!
Hell, I don’t care!

They say my face’s ugly,
oh, yes I’m not pretty.
Hell, I don’t care!

Reading these words,
of fake and fallacy,
I cried.
I care.

    1. Haha. Those were the good old day, Mel. 🙂 Or maybe just last year when I am still hanging our with those ‘friends’ who are far richer than me and who ‘love’ to mentioned that my calories are unstoppable.
      But now, I am fine. 😉

  1. Oh nooooo this just broke my heart a little. My dear and beautiful Rosema, society and others will always hate those who are not like them, those who shine brighter, and those whose souls are full of gold ❤ I hope you never let these words diminish your brightness or tarnish your gold.

    1. awww. such a lovely lovely lovely comment, my dear Jade! ❤ Thank you! This was written maybe a year ago when I was trying to embrace how my 'friends' who are richer than me and have been in love of mentioning my flaws always. But then I somehow realized I don't need such persons in my life. I am fine now. 😉 Better than ever. 😉 (still with those fat flabs though. HAHA)

  2. A great emotive poem Rosema and I am sorry you had to go through the experience. Sometimes we experience these things and it provides a hidden strength we never knew existed.

  3. An effectively chosen, one-word title. A well-crafted ode to pebble concerns that others make boulders of. Unfortunately, we hold the pebbles, which should be only ours to deal with as well as those who positively care about us. A moving account of the cause and effect of cruelty. Skillful and insightful work, precious sister!
