Big Beautiful Woman

by The Fairy Mary Poppins   Jul 24, 2014

I'm not a stick
who's a size 4,
I'm a woman with a lot of curves
& not ashamed one bit,
You may not see me gorgeous
Then again you're not married to me,

I wear heels like them skinny women
Sure I might break them
But I wear them too,
I make my money just like you
It doesn't matter that she has "beauty"
Since I'm the one with brains,
Daddy always said "Women with curves are always the best"
Since mommy was a big beautiful woman
I'm not ashamed one bit

    Superb and I agree with the sentiment entirely - though each to their own!

    - "them" should be "those"

    I love the whole idea of this poem, it is a subject that raises many concerns about the younger generations and how imagery in society has changed, and still is changing.

    I like how you added in the cliché of beauty and brains, and how you had pride over being clever.

    I also though it was a good touch to the poem to add in the parents, and what they say and do, I believe that because they are proud and unashamed of themselves, that their children have learned the same confidence, of loving yourself and accepting yourself as people who matter accept you, and not how strangers try to change you, before they will accept you!

    Really great topic, and you worded it well.

    Well done

    I love how this poem seems so personal and straight from the heart. The narrator comes across as a strong character, totally at home in her body and proud to be who she is. If more of us could feel like this we would be a lot happier!

    A powerful and liberating write.:)
