Stretch marks & attempted suicide
No longer held hostage behind the
Bars of this oppressive society
Or in your cell, taunted by its ever
So contorted & fluctuating definition of beauty.
From the shackles that inhibited
Due to society's scruitny of you
And I am you.
Pleased in your own skin
At ease with the soul within.
God created you errorlessly,
So promise me,
Never to conceal your insecurities
Under cloaks of modesty.
Instead, exchange that wardrobe
For some pride you see,
You are a queen,
To heaven with your self esteem.
Head held so high you rest it upon
The clouds to dream
The sun is your crown's gleam..
The love for yourself,
Is greater than that from anyone else.
