We fear what we hear

We cringe and try to disappear

 

We fear, What we see in the mirror

The scary lousy (un)truthful  mirror

 

Prisoners of our own reflection

We fear the rejection

Why?

 

She did it

You did it

Even I did it

Why?

 

You are FAT like a filthy pig

You are THIN like a stingy pin

You are FRECKLED like a dirty frog

You are PLAIN like a useless board

You are BLACK like a sweaty buffalo

You are BROWN like a clumsy gruffalo

And You, You are WHITE like a soggy marshmallow

 

Abusing, blaming and needless naming –

this is what if not body-shaming?
