Read Poem: FAT IS NOT WHO I AM by L. Gresty

I know that you see me, you cannot help that
My backsides much bigger,
Than your massive hat…
You think ‘cause I’m over, the mass of my grocer
I must be a horrible bitch.
A hunny that’s heavy, with legs just like jelly
Must really sweat, stink and itch.
Yet if you look closer, or listen to me
And value my words more than figure
You may find a friend, someone to help mend
And with kindness,
Stop me getting bigger.
I don’t smell or itch, and I’m not such a bitch
Which you’d realise if you gave a damn…
So talk to me nicely
And in future think twicely,
Because ‘fat’ is not WHO I am!
