A poem about the skeleton.
About the Poem

I saw a picture of a skeleton and an idea came in my head and I knew right then and there that I should put my ideas into words, and so I did. And this is what I came up with.

This is actually ironic 'cause I encourage people to be confident yet I have a very low self-esteem. I'm weird.

Please comment and tell how do you like this poem.


An Ode to the Skeleton

You think you're too fat,
So you starve yourself to death.

Darling, you look fine,
You don't need to suffer.

You think, you're too thin,
So you try to eat more than you can.

Darling, you look perfectly fine,
You don't need to force yourself.

Accept who you are,
Settle for your own skin.

Throw away that frown,
And let out a grin.

'Cause if we took off our skin,
We're all the same.

Plain old skeleton, perfectly made.
