Fat, Thin, Or Healthy

The words today are weight

Everywhere you look

Lose ten pounds is the key

And found in every book.

I used to think I looked alright

Until I heard the news

That I am unhealthy and oh so fat

And now I have the blues.

Our forefathers ate from the ground

And we eat from a box or can

The chemicals we do put within

Should automatically all be banned.

I want to be happy with who I am

I will never be very thin

So turn my mind to home cooked meals

And empty out the cookie tin.

It if grew in the ground it is alright

If it came from production, get it out of sight

Replace the sweets with natural sugars

And never, ever eat through the night.

I don’t have to be a walking stick

To feel like I fit in

I just want my inner parts

To be happy inside my skin.

Terry Shepherd

  1. That is why I don’t listen to the rules, but listen to my body and what it wants. If you do listen you can tell when it needs more water, more fruit, and so on. What you crave is your body telling you it is low on something that a certain food provides. I also listen to God who says I am beautifully and wonderfully made. So let others dwell on the rules humans make that leave you self-defeated, but for me…God and my body know better.
