Like a Phoenix From The Ashes I will Rise (An Open Letter to the #BodyShamers): Unearthing My Precious Jewels


Today delve into my emotions with yet another heartfelt poetic composition very close to my heart....

I am curvy

I and short and plump

But I love myself

And thank God for he gave me life no matter what shape and size

I wear my smile

And flaunt my compassionate heart

I am an artist's muse 

A poet's verse

I stay away from people who judge

And measure my achievements by the size of my waist

Happy in my own space

In my own eyes, I look gorgeous

I am that child

Seeing an ice cream whose eyes still shine

I am that teenager

Under whose pillow some chocolates you'll forever find

From being a damsel

Who'll design her own dresses

And adorn herself in tiaras

To conceal within all the chronic scars

I have bloomed into a woman

Who dares to bare her heart?

While otherwise, I am a stream of unconditional love

Don't mess with me, you body-shamers

Troll me, hate me do whatever you like

You'll not tell me the way I'll lead my life

And if you try to burn my desires

Like a Phoenix from the ashes, I will rise

P.S. Body-shaming impacts women's #Mentalhealth adversely. This poem is written to bring forth how one feels about the same and what can be done.
