Why would you want to be light as a feather?
So you can fly?
Feathers don't fly.
The air pushes them around.
They have no control.
They tend to thrive only on influence from others.
They don't have their own lives.
They're easily lost in a crowd.
Feathers are short-lived and easily damaged.
They have no strength to defend themselves.
No feather has ever lifted or helped another.
They are too frail when held.
I like how I'm not as light as a feather,
'Cause there's something TO me... unlike that wisp in the wind.

My brother once commented that he doesn't like to dance with extremely skinny girls because he feels like he'll break them in half. I've never been extremely skinny, and have now realized I'm blessed with these curves :)
