Reflective/Thinking Poems Try: True Beauty

Why do our bodies bother us?

    Why do they make us cry?

Why do they often make us laugh

    And also make us sigh?

 

Why do our bodies bother us?

    Pigs don’t consider weight.

One piggy thinks another one

   Looks piggish and quite great!

 

Why do our bodies bother us?

    Why do we spend our time

Dwelling on our spots and hair?

    It really is a crime.

 

Do birds worry about their shape,

   Their height, their legs or feet?

Are they concerned with getting fat

   From foods they choose to eat?

 

Why do our bodies bother us -

   The colour of our skin -

Or if a man’s a little short

   Or a girl looks rather thin?

 

Are birds, reptiles or animals

   Concerned about their hearts?

And do they ever feel the need

   To hide their private parts?

 

No, so don’t let your body bother you -

   It’s colour, shape or size -

And then you’ll be much happier

   And also very wise.
