Captivative, yet held back,
Don’t wear that dress!
It’s the figure you lack.
Reminded at every second,
Of how misshaped she was.
Is body-shaming just all talk?
Worked for hours at the gym.
Ate less, till she starved.
Only to keep up with societal norms.
Then came a day when she met this someone.
He told her,
Baby you’re beautiful the way you are.
He lifted her heart,
Like a wish made on a shooting star.
Don’t you want me to fit into a Size 8 dress at all?
He pecked her on the cheek and replied,
Don’t worry, I don’t care at all doll!
She felt liberated.
She felt free.
Someone in the crowd,
Has accepted her flaws.
