And just for thought...
If I eat that pancake, it will sit on my hips, attach to my thighs
and hide the womanly curve that men eye.
A doughnut forever my safety net to keep the world away
or else I may be pushed into a corner, pinned down to doom.
I would rather suffocate myself with cupcakes.
He saw my spark, my beautiful, youthful spark and dimmed me for years.
Vowing to never be the object of a man's infatuation again, I made myself a shield.
No man would want a fat chick with multiple chins.
Through the years, I held on tight to my armor
because without it I felt too vulnerable.
Now after all these years, this fear fades.
I no longer need to wrap myself in bacon to protect me.
At the end of the day, I'm just a girl who has been in love with writing her entire life. I am full of quirks, anxieties, fears, joys, laughter. And all I have wanted to do was give the world a smile.
