Poems about Body Image

Overweight

By |January 4th, 2012|

I’m overweight

I know

And I hate it

 

My body

I can’t stand to look at it

 

I’m overweight

I know

And I just can’t take it

 

It drives me crazy

When in the mirror I see

My belly fat looking back at me

 

I’m getting older and my body looks the part

I need a change, but where to start?

 

It’s hard to change this lifestyle

Living the […]

Rediscover my Body

By |February 20th, 2010|

I’ve got to rediscover my body

Completely explore

The wonderful treasure that’s worth so much more

Than I allow myself to see

When I look at the lady in the mirror

Every inch a God-send, every shine, every shimmer

This body of mine, I need to take the time

To love what’s mine

An absolute divine

I have to rediscover or maybe discover my […]

Poem for the BIG GIRLS

By |February 20th, 2010|

Big girls

Lovely girls

Voluptuous queens

 

They help make up this world

Wonderful women

Beautiful women

Awesome personalities

With so much integrity

 

I admire and very much

Respect these ladies

Kudos to their confidence

Kudos to their strength

 

Honest women with kind hearts

A good sense-of-humor

And so very smart

God made them

Just the way they are

 

So attractive inside and out

Woman who know where they stand,

And what real beauty is […]

Out of Shape

By |February 20th, 2010|

Out of shape

Overweight

How do I get back into shape?

 

My new size

I despise

I use to be slim

Now I have gained weight

I am ashamed of this whole thing

 

Left my health

On the shelf

Cob webs surrounding

 

Need to watch

What I eat

No more starch, no more sweets

 

This new body

Isn’t a treat

I don’t want to surrender in defeat

 

Need to be wise

Exercise

Drinks lots […]

The Girl in the Mirror

By |February 20th, 2010|

The girl in the mirror

Her face and body I don’t recognize

The girl in the mirror

Her face and body I almost despise

 

The girl in the mirror

She looks unfamiliar

Her body is different

Her curls have turn to knots

Please can you help me connect the dots?

 

The girl in the mirror

Needs a transformation

A change must be made

For her salvation

 

My Body

By |January 25th, 2010|

Sensually arousing

Mysteriously appetizing

Inevitably belonging

Naturally intimidating

 

Awaiting a prince, a handsome warrior

The ultimate survivor

It’s meant to be touched

But by only one

 

The one, the prince destined to be my king

In search of his queen

The one

Who values it more than all his earthly treasures

 

For now that he’s seen it, he has but one treasure

It’s meant to be explored but by only […]
