    I loved this poem. It's funny, uplifting, very tongue in cheek & made me smile. I think any woman who is feeling down, or lacks confidence should read this poem. She's not bragging or taking herself seriously, she's just saying 'I'm confident, I'm proud of who I am, I'm happy in my own skin, take me as you find me' (Report) Reply

    I like poo; do you?
    That is the question I ask
    I know that I do

    Some do not like it
    I cannot tell why they don't
    They must learn to sit

    Sometimes I worry
    That not everyone is smart
    As my mum's curry

    I am a Haiku
    Do not ponder or fret for
    It is very true

    Take a paracetamol
