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
It's nice to see someone who is proud of who they are and where they come from inspiring to say the least ... I've been a bit shallow in the past myself... in fact the girl I marry on Wednesday I said was not my type... but now every time I look I just keep thinking... how did I not see what I see now.

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