O.K. so I agree my hips just might be a bit wide
And yes I admit my butt oversized
So what if I’ve got extra fat 
Wont stop me from thinking I’m all that
My figure obviously larger than yours
But these differences uniquely ours
Time we stop telling each other what “real size” should be
Our bodies and personalities help define the mirrored image we each call ME
I don’t mind a little advice on self care
But to think me less than you, how do you dare?
My mirror doesn’t lie so I know I look good
Everything still rest in places they should
So save your sarcasm and your criticisms
Cause my skin and size I’m comfortable in
Please don’t waste your time cause I’m comfortable with my curves
Before you go teaching improvement ensure self love has been learnt.
