I stepped outside of myself

And took a look at me

I really must admit,

I don’t like what I see


I am not myself

Nor who I want to be

I have become the image

of a judgmental society


My thighs are too big

My stomach isn’t flat

I must be ugly

Cause I really am fat


I look at myself in the mirror

And am disgusted with what I see

Visualizing the fat girl

That is dying to be free
