–>she must be starving
she must be gorged<–
–>one is scrimping
the other wants more<–
–>excessive obese overflow
both nearly drowning and it shows
–>bodies pushed into molds<–
but who are we to really scold?
do we think we really know…
…all the abuse that they’ve been shown?
…or the type of genes they own?
what gets hurt beneath fat and bone
when someone frowns or looks down?
<–a beating heart, tattered and torn
far deeper than the physical form–>
who cares if they don’t fit “the norm”!
instead of such flippant flout
<–give the benefit of a doubt
how about a change of tone–>
towards the ostracized and alone
we weren’t meant to look like clones
<–remember to love a person’s soul
try on their shoes and take a stroll–>

“The Lord does not look at the things people look at.
People look at the outward appearance,
but the Lord looks at the heart.” ~ 1 Samuel 16:7
