Measurements

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.

Sleepless  nights,

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,

as  treasures.
