the fat man

Hidden in the folds of the big man
Hidden in the folds of fat
Are the things he longs to be.
Welcome, accepted, included,
and treated like another person.
Hidden in the folds of the big man
Hidden in the folds of his fat
Are the secrets he longs to shed.
Depression, self-hatred, and
self-confidence waning with time.
