They Call Me Ugly



Oblong headed with a large face
I call it large, you call it fat
Treading the road with my designer bow legs

I hear the jeers and ew's
The signs of irritation glaringly written on thier faces
I almost believed I was a fiend
I almost lost sight of who I am
I've got brains but not your definition of beauty
No fake lashes or even plastic surgery
I appreciate beautiful folks but I believe all is vanity
It's not my fault you call me ugly
I didn't do anything to be the way I am
And so did your 'fine' people too
I'm beautiful on the inside
It's not my fault you just can't see

This is dedicated to all plus sized people in the world, even if they call you ugly, know that you're beautiful not just in their assessment of beauty.
Have a positive day.
Dieko.

Beautiful post. Beauty fades, but it's more important to have a beautiful heart and personality. Thanks for sharing this girl, you are truly inspiring.

external beauty fades, but a beautiful heart will not.. sexy hot stunning woman??? ahhhh when they reach 60 who will appreciate? will they still have that? but a woman with a great beautiful heart who is the real beautiful one.. will remain beautiful whether she is 20;30; or 60.

Awww. Thanks babe. That was so encouraging.
Beautiful post! I think you are beautiful, its too bad society decides what is "beautiful". It is to bad that images reflect one type of person and exclude all other forms of beauty. Plus size, skinny, curvy, whatever, every single person is beautiful and true beautiful people can see that. Everyone else has superficial and confirmative opinions, those opinions do not matter.
great post! I think beauty ideals are changing every day, but this stigma still sticks. I think every person can be beautiful based on what's inside, not outside.

Beautifully written and to the point. You don't look ugly to me at all. True beauty really goes beyond what the eyes can see.

This is marvelous. What's most important is that you are able to love the skin you're in. To hell what other people think!

My Father!

So, guys it's official. I'm back! Yippee!

 After the too long hiatus, I'm finally back. It wasn't an intentional break though but let's just thank God I'm back. I promise to keep you glued, educated and informed like I used to .

 So I'm starting a series called, My Father. It entails most of my childhood experiences centred around my father.
There's no better way to get over a memory than laughing over it.
So join me as I laugh over pain, laugh at the sorrows and make good comedy out of it.

Growing up has a way of bringing so many nostalgic thoughts to a person. You see, time actually does a lot in lightening up things.

Situations that seemed so gargantuan could easily be eased by the cooling balm of time. So, this is one of those thoughts.

My father and I used to live together. I had a step sibling who was a baby about this time. You know, I remember my dad taking me out on my birthday, buying me nice stuffs and all but I think…

My Independence Day Vegetable soup Recipe

Happy Independence Day Nigeria! My bad. I know I should have  done this yesterday but I was way too sick to even get out of my bed.  As a patriotic Nigerian that I am,  I thought of what to do to celebrate my country on her Independence. I  wanted to sing the national anthem but somehow my muse told me to cook!

So, I'm like...  What in the world I'm I supposed to cook. Instagram is so full of makeup artists with the green and white artistry .So as a food freak, I decided to show my allegiance by cooking this vegetable soup since it's green and my country's Independence colours are green and white.
So here's how to prepare the soup!

Recipe

Sorry palm oil is part of the recipe but I couldn't get a perfect picture adding the palm oil so I cropped it out. 
METHOD
Boil the meat and fry.  Boil water and soak the veggies in it. Then rinse severally and cut. I like this method of cleaning vegetable because it helps me retain some of the nutrients lost in cutting before…
