More to Love ~ By Yesenia Luna
What makes me any different than you?
Sure, I am plus size,
but I am still human.
I may not be able to fit into this, that,
but I am beautiful.
Like Lucille Clifton says
“These hips are magic hips!”,
They’re no size zero, they’re size stunning.
Breaks my heart to be reminded
skinny is more attractive.
Women my size struggle,
emotionally and physically.
We don't need bullies and the media
reminding us we aren't pretty.
In a world of chaos, standards, and
judgment, repeat after me:
I am me. I praise me. I love me.
