I am Me and I am Proud

Excerpt from YOUR L!FE: Young Voices from The Write of Your L!fe™ Anthology (to be released Spring 2015)

When you call me fat, do not worry.
I know it is you,
not me that has to change.
I know I am beautiful just the way I am.
I care less of what people think,
because I know and celebrate the real me.
You may call me stupid;
but I know I am intelligent and smart beyond my years.
Look at the way I expose my real self.
I am me and I am proud.
Hope is what I want.
Not for me, but for you,
to see that I am beautiful just the way I am.
