Moonwashed Weekly Prompt

Awkward in my body

Awkward in my brain

Your think you’re fat,

I am fat, we are not the same.

You pose provocatively in the mirror

Twisting this way and that

Tugging at imagined imperfections

Asking me, does this make me look fat?

You don’t see the irony

Or notice the shame on my face

I shake my head instantly

Resigned to my fat-friend place

There is nothing in the world

Worse than a body like mine

I am reminded constantly

But it’s high school, I pretend I’m fine.

-Nicole Smith, Momoetry

My 2nd time entering the Moonwashed Weekly Prompt. I enjoy seeing where the word and/or picture takes everyone.
