My Pot Belly And I

my pot belly and i sing love songs to each other
like lullabies of broken hearts
and dreams waiting to join at the hip
yeah, my pot belly and i

my pot belly and i have been through a lot together
cold winters snuggled up under 5 blankets
like a burrito wrap of love and longing
yeah, my pot belly and i

my pot belly and i have done some ruckus causin’ shit
made enemies
and friends
went to protests and roared
I AM NOT INVISIBLE
yeah, my pot belly and i

my pot belly and i have ignored severely discouraging advertisements
about thin bellies
and non existant hips
where people have bullied incesseantly our need to be visible
our need to be loved
and wanted
and needed

this is not just about fatness
or body positivity
or even a society that says that pot bellies have no place here
it is about longing to love ourselves
and want ourselves
the way we are and not the way you deem we should act

my pot belly and i wear clothes too small
and jeans too tight
and let everything hang out
and let everything feel free
to do what we want when we want
how we want it
yeah, my pot belly and i love me
