Divergence

They may compare you to a stick

But your inside’s built as a brick

Skinny and yet full of thunder

Your weight is just a number

They might think you are burly

Oblivious to your heart pearly

Bulky and yet a dancer

Your weight is just a number

They may say you are fat

But let’s not dwell on that

Curvy and yet nothing to encumber

Your weight is just a number

They may say you are too tall

Not fit to fight or brawl

Lanky and yet a weightlifter

Your height is just a number

They may think you to be heavy

But not at all like the normal bevy

Chubby and yet a climber

Your weight is just a number

They might call you short

Too small and polite to retort

Petite and yet a ball of fire

Your height is just a number

Body shaming has become a very big part in today’s dank sense of humour and criticism, be it for the fat or for the thin, tall or short. Everyone expects you to have a perfect body shape, and this is true for men as well as women. What people fail to understand in their expectations is that God has made everyone different and each one of us has a different body type just like all of us have different abilities and distinct faces. This stress to have the perfect body leads people toward depression instead of fitness and that is what needs to be discouraged. Fitness and weight are two totally different concepts. Eating healthy, exercising and being comfortable with our own body is what matters, not how much you eat, how much you weigh or how tall you are as long as you are happy. If food makes you happy, by all means stuff your face, if gym is your soul, go ahead and lift those weights.

I would say again YOUR WEIGHT/HEIGHT IS JUST A NUMBER!!!

Eat, exercise, sleep, repeat!
