They argued

When i was little
i won the quiz bee
It was science
It was challenging
But I did it
i won
So
i went home and proudly said
“Look! I won!”
THEY LOOKED AT me
Disgusted
“But, your’e fat” they argued.

When i was small
i placed first runner up
in a contest.
It was awesome.
People applauded.
i went home and told THEM
BUT OH NO!
THEY were not glad
“But,your’e fat.” they argued.

When i was tiny
i went home and bragged
i passed a training
i said.
THEY frowned
Looked down on me
Laughed
“But, your’e fat.” they argued.

Then I grew up.
It was painful.
It was a spectacular process.
I did not win on anything
BUT I GREW UP
I LEARNED THAT My WORTH–
And how I influence the world thru my heart
“but…but, you ARE fat!” they argued
“But, I’m more than that.” I SAID.
