The Fat Damsel


Welcome to The Fat Damsel. We are looking for pieces that you simply had to write. Words that had to come out of you, words that came immediately, or words that you had to wait years to have the courage to write. Send us your poems or short pieces that show the world that you are a survivor. From the big things, to the small things, life can be a battleground. Send us pieces that other survivors can read and relate to and gain some support from. We look for honesty and heart. We look for poems to survive in.

    Alive before it’s dead and no regrets.
    I look forward to my own Exit…or Drugzit or whatever cool way we decide to call euthanasia.
    Let’s never get carried away by profits, forgetting our internal deficits
    and there are many.
    Ambition isn’t an excuse for stupidity -ask Boris, but it is excused -when you are so rich it doesn’t matter to you, again ask Boris.
    Kind people become cruel when they become wealthy and that alone should warn us off…
    But…my business does well? and I give back…so I’m truly good aren’t….I?
    Are you? I have seen so many people fall into the ‘power’ trap of self congratulation and I hope more than anything that this does not become the norm, because it is not the situation most ‘normal’ people live in.
    Most people know their flaws and live with them well.
