An Original Rhyme by Me

I don't write poetry very often, but I love to churn out a verse every now and again when I am particularly inspired. Here's a short piece, untitled.

You look at me,
What do you see?
A number, a size
Something to criticize.

You look at me
And all you see.
A weight, a shape
Something to hate.

More than a number,
More than a size
I'm a spirit, a soul
Beautiful and whole.


  1. Wow, that was awesome. Maybe you should this more often :)
    Jules @ Trying To Get Over The Rainbow

  2. Mel, those are great rhymes! I enjoyed reading it a lot!

  3. Oh a poet too i see...very good Mel x

  4. @Jules, Thanks! I hope to start writing more poetry.

  5. @Nebular Thank you George! I'm glad you liked them.

  6. @Dempsey Aww... thanks, Demps. It's good to have you back.

  7. nice work

    from me there is not much poetry to be had,
    but if there was it would probably be bad.

  8. @Chris Thanks!

    Even bad lines
    provide great rhymes. :)

  9. This is so true. Growing up I never thought I was thin enough, Now looking back, I see how thin I really was. As a thirty-something woman I feel just fine with all my full curves. :)

    Loved this! And thanks for your lovely comments on my blog! :)

  10. Pk, I know exactly what you mean. I was so horribly body conscious that it was depressing and I never loved me as me. I do now. :)

    Thank you for your wonderful thoughts. I love visiting your blog.

  11. How did I miss this! I love it~ This is so well done and true~
    We need to embrace who we are and size should not matter! :D

    1. Thank you, Ella! Your thoughts here mean the world to me as I love your poetry. And yes, we should all embrace our size and love ourselves no matter what.


I love, love comments, so please leave your thoughts. I may not always be able to answer directly, but please know that what you say is very important to me.
