I'm slightly over weight
My left hip sits lower than my right
and I have to do a jig just to pull my jeans up.
I have a crooked smile and a bit of a lazy eye
My stretch marks reach across my sides and down my calves and thighs
and yet, depsite these "flaws" I can appreciate this body, this shell of mine.
I have a sideways smile full of joy and traced with laugh lines
A set of uneven eyes that have obtained premature crows feet from squinty smiles
I have memories embeded in my scar tissue
you can trace my growth by my stretch marks
all while struggling to stay inside the lines because frankly,
the curves just keep going
you can see the steps I have taken on my flat feet
see how many times I've fallen and gotten back up and scraped my knee in the process
you can get to know me through my flaws
my very unique make up of experiences and marks to match
im just flawlessly flawed and happily myself because of it
