    Obesity is not my name
    I am not a red line on a chart
    My tears fall soft, just like yours
    This fat still cushions a heart

    I am not an entertaining joke
    an Excuse to make you grin
    My outer layers may have their faults,
    but I am not just skin

    I am not a target for sympathy
    and diet advice has its place,
    but I don’t 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 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‘m an extraordinary person
    But obesity is not my name

    Hi Sappho

    I loved your poem. I'm new so I am still finding my way around the forum at the moment. I attend a weekly creative writing class so I might unburden myself here as well!:)

    Hope you are feeling happy.

    Hi Debs - yes writing little poems is kinda like a diary for me. I have lots of "Dieting" ones. I wrote this one when I was particulaly annoyed after a Doctors appointment!

    Hi Joanne - would love to read some of your poems. The class sounds good, I wouldnt be brave enough to read mine out in front of people though lol.

    Thanks for your comments. :p

    Belief

    Hi Sappho

    Here's one of mine:):)

    Belief
    It’s a feeling, a knowing

    You feel comfortable and trusting

    You surrender to the inevitability

    It must happen, it will happen

    There’s no decision to make, it’s made

    Faith, duty, conviction

    It might take work, commitment,
    dedication

    I don’t know how

    But I have belief

    One day it will happen

    I’m assured of the outcome

    I’m on the edge, awaiting the beginning

    Ready, devoted, ardent

    I can feel the enthusiasm being ignited

    The believing and manifesting are being realised

    It’s with me, it’s starting, I’m prepared

    I can do it, I can do it,

    I can lose 5 stone

    I’m a BELIEVER!!!!!!



    Hope it made you smile.

    Joanna xx
