Mr. Africa Poetry Lounge!
Sistah Big Bone
Plump or plus size
Thicker or bigger
There's no way to describe
The feeling of these rubbing thighs.
I make no apology nor try to disguise
My curvy and more than ample body
When gazed upon by unaccepting eyes.
My Body was made perfectly
The way God intended
So who cares
If my stomach is a little overly extended?
But never have I pretended
Or failed to realize
That physically my body
Isn't like you,
We both have two arms and two legs
I just have more body than you do.
No longer will I be
Ashamed of me
Because society has everyone shook.
But what they don't know,
Is that Mo'Nique Queen Latifah
And women like me are the modern look.
A pretty face
With a little extra chin
And stretch marks that graze our skin
Less is no longer more
Because we are the new thin.
And yes there are an extra set of love handles on my back
From my occasional mid-night snack
But whether you call it
Over weight, obese, BBW, big girl or fat
I know that you can plainly see
That I am SISTAH BIG BONE REALITY!
