I refuse to change




He asks me to change who I am

So he can love me again as he did before

He asks me to slim down my hips

The hips that give me the curves you so adore

He asks me to loose my curves and become a 2

You love me at a 10 or 12

You love me, hips and all

More landscape for you to explore you say

He asks me to take out my hair

Hair you don’t mind me having

You like when I switch it up

He asks me to lighten my skin so I can look more appealing to him and the mass he says

You love me with my milk chocolate glow

It shows I have been touched by the beautiful African sun

I dared to change myself to retain his love

I lost my hair he so loved from the stress

My waist line grew bigger from the stress as well

Which instead pushed him away

I lost sleep from worry and it affected my complexion’s glow he so wanted me to change

Now I have you and all the stress is gone

I have slimmed down from peace of mind

My skin glows once more

It radiates the love it receives from you

My hair, body and mind are peaceful once again.

Thank You Bernice. You are very right, love makes you a beautiful person just like hatred and anger is poison to the body and mind.
