Poetry: Self-Love


I take it all in,
My cellulite, my stretch marks, my flabby parts

I take it all in,
The numbers on the scale, my graying hair, my pale skin

I take it all in,
My crooked teeth, my worsening sight, my hooded lids

I stand by the mirror,
I’m looking at me,

My reflection isn’t perfect
But I take it all in.

You have a huge capacity of love – for yourself, and for others.
