Lesson Won

Lesson Won

Once I had a function somewhere
And not a decent dress to wear
Looking in the mirror, I couldn’t bear
How gross I looked, like a bear.

I struggled to get into my jeans
But quit midway cursing my genes
I wish I had a figure to die for
And not a size of ten times four

Then one day a friend came by
To my insecurities, I said goodbye
She taught me life’s lesson
Of acceptance, my worry did lessen

In my favourite jeans, out on a date
I remember her words till date
How you look is a matter light
It shouldn’t steal your inner light.
