If I'm an embarrassment, if I'm too big,
then change my name, call me The Pig.
I'm sorry I can't be skinny like a swimsuit model,
I know what you're thinking, the babies crying where's her bottle?
I can be other things, maybe not skinny,
if you don't believe me, I bet you a penny.
You never knew how I felt, I never came out,
instead I laughed with you, never dared to pout.
As the years past I thought I was strong,
but slowly I started to realize that I was wrong.
I hope what I'm saying doesn't come as a shock,
because I didn't mean for it to be, truly not.
It took so long, so many years,
but hopefully now I can dry these tears.
