A Changing World
by: Karen Wyeth

If I could change something in this world:
I would make everyone the same size.

Not fat,
Or thin,
But merely, a healthy looking in between.

People would be valued for their
And individual traits;
As apposed to their appearance.

We would eat as we pleased,
And never feel guilty;
Or resort to media infested diets.

But I can not change this world;
And thus,
The battle goes forth.

But there is another way.

I can share my inner fears;
I can learn to value
My abilities,
My talents,
And my individual traits.

I can seek the answer,
And try to change:

A world,
That has fought so hard,
Against the real me.
