Instance – Body

They tell me that:

I have no curves,
and my breasts are too flat.
My belly’s too full,
and my arms are too fat.
That I am not thin,
yet my body lacks substance.
I don’t fit into the style
they’re accustomed.

This poem is meant to empower women and convey that beauty is indeed in the eye of the beholder. It shines a light on others’ opinions of the “ideal” body, while encouraging women to embrace the one they have been given, with no regard to external perceptions or comparisons which are meaningless in their own right.
