All of That

I think

The most heartbreaking

Misunderstanding

Of body positivity, and the

Realities of the obesity epidemic

Is that non-obese folk

Here an obese person say

“I love being who I am—

I want to be healthy, but

I know I’ll never be thin”

And confuse that

For being proud of their fat

When all anyone

Was trying to mention

Was that they are still

A person, underneath

All of that

And perhaps

That

Deserves respect

No matter what
