Dear body, 

Darling, you’re beautiful

Just the way you are.

Your size, shape, or color

Does not define who you are.

Oh how I wish you could see yourself

Through my eyes,

Ashes in the furnace, dust on the rise,

You came through it all the way, flying

Through the skies.


When you smile,

The look in your chocolate brown eyes,

Oh, that look! Could outshine the sun in the skies.


You are an alluring woman,

Shining like a morning star.

Like a queen carrying her jewels,

Carry your flaws and scars

Because darling,

You’re beautiful, just the way you are.
