I must fit specific requirements to be deemed as, “Beautiful”.
I can be thick, but not fat.
I can have breasts, but they must not sag.
but no under eye bags.
I can have hair, but it’s prettier straight.
make-up free face,
with not a blemish in trace.
I can have hips……but they can’t be too wide…
Legs that are big, but no thunder thighs.
I can have a stomach but it can’t show that it carried,
another human being ,
and toxic stress,
while unhealthily married.
I can have big calves, that must fit every boot
arms that jiggle ,
but still wear sleeves that are cute.
My waist must be cinched,
while the rest of me is abnormally measured.
For these reasons,
women struggle to see themselves,
