    Obesity is not my name
    I am not a red line on a chart
    My tears fall just as soft as yours
    this body still holds a heart

    I am not an entertaining joke
    an excuse to make you grin
    My outside layer may have it's faults
    but I am not just skin

    I am not a target for sympathy
    and diet advice has its place
    I dont need to be told how good I could look
    cos I have such a lovely face

    I am not my dress size
    I am not the size of my shoe
    There is a good person inside of me
    I am just as worthy as you

    I do not find reason to judge you
    So I ask that you do the same
    I am an extraordinary person
    Obesity is not my name
