The body and the soul.
To all those people who are victims of body shaming,
When was the last time you presented yourself like you wanted to?
Was it before the society set unreal beauty standards that you weren't invited to? Until you adapt to their rulebooks? Was it the time when your choices sneered at,
It took a toll on your self confidence, and you found yourself struggling with your confidence
As it crushed your body and self love alike?
Was it when you were ridiculed for being short
You felt all those eyes looking at you,
So swapped the flipped flops with the pointed heels, and your toe joint cried silently?
Was it after you were labelled Chubby or fat?
And eating disorder followed the shaming, you dreaded looking at the mirror and you wished you were like those models on tv
Was it after you were called a stick, mockingly asked if you were starving, and then relentlessly adviced you how to gain some weight?
How can I forget those advertisments that promise to make your skin lighter, or the lazers that didn't warn you, about the cuts and scars?
Honey let me tell you,
All the people they call ideal, Have a different backstory to tell, and you are a unique, lovely creation.
We are human, not clones
And can't look the illogically 'beautiful' way.
Kick off the preconceived notions, and start embracing yourself.
You are not here to just look pretty and wither of.
And you are not just what you eat,
You are the confidence, you are the wit
You're the kindness, the talent, you are much more than just skin muscles and bones.
You are not just the body but the soul.
