“Episodes of distress” – Kevin Davis (Culled from Lucy’s Works)

I’m fat,

I’m big,

I’m huge,

I’m dark,

I’m lean,

I’m skinny,

I’m subtle too,

terms of comparison

seems irrational

Earth is diverse

ranges in color,

creed,

ethnic,

and race.

We distinguish ourselves

as an outcome of

minute peculiar change.

But end up

Emphasizing condescension

on all antonyms.

Did you ever ponder

the implication of

Body shaming?

Offensive isn’t it?

If being us is similar

then,

reason for existence is

brought

for a cause!

I have fantasy

I do want to live

happily

Cover me with colors

and

look beautiful

But pretend not to

Plead you

Love, laugh and live.
