Lonesome Road

Without malice or shame

"You look like you came from a concentration camp."

There was a smile along with the comment in the school shower room. It was not meant to be cruel. Just friendly joshing, of course. 


Always the skinniest one in the school classroom. The thinnest of the boys.

Not smaller than the girls. Well, tinier than most of them as well.

The story is not all sad. A personality may be large in itself. It may allow one to feel better than body shaming.

It should be easy now to shrug off the calls of runt.

Being loved helps.
