Bullied

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.

Not sexy, but definitely happy

I may be flabby.
And you may laugh at me.

I may be meaty.
And surely, you can bully me.

I may be fat.
But I still have a heart.

I may be stout.
But please don’t give me doubts.

Yes, I am chubby.
But you have no right to tell me “I’m not worthy.”

Yes, I am not sexy.
But I can confidently say, “I’m happy.”

Now, let me ask you.
“Are you as happy as me?”
