What the World told Me.

I stood before the world and the world said to me:

I stood before the world and the world said to me:

I stood before the world and the world said to me:

I stood before the world and the world said to me:

I stood before the world and the world said to me:

You are fat so you are obese.

I stood before the world and the world told me:

You are what I say you are. It does not matter if its true,

I decided what you are meant for thats not up to you.

I looked back at the world and I shouted back:

You do not get to define me. 

You do not say what I am. 

I am decided who I am. 

That is no up to you.

So shut up and sit down I won't listen to you. 

Enough with your hate, enough with your lies.

If you keep this up we are all going to die.

Stop the hate, stop the stereotypes.

You don't know me, or my neighbors.

I refuse to accept what you say. 

I choose to accept everyone, 

for who they are.

I stood before the world and I told it to shut up.
