But that's just me!



I'm not the best looker.
I'm big and broad.
I have big feet,
And I'm kind of loud.

My clothes aren't the best.
They don't fit me well.
Strangers stare at me,
And I don't feel so swell.

My body makes noises.
I can't control.
To a thousand gyms,
I have enrolled.

I have many friends.
Who love me as I am.
They always lift my mood,
When I'm feeling Wham.

Whenever I'm low.
Whenever I'm crappy.
I look into the mirror,
And I always get happy.

I am not perfect.
But neither are you.
So let me live my life,
And you live your life too.

Life is too small.
So be who you are.
Be happy in your skin,
And take this with you far!

Creation said...

This reminds me of those all those Chicken Soup books that I once used to read.
Indeed, a charming poem with a beautiful message and it's the simplicity of the poem that wins one over.
