Here's my simple interrogative.
Do you see a body negative?
Or do you see a body positive?
Do you embrace yourself, and all that is yours?
Or do you look at it in condemnation,
As if it was an emotional chore?
Do you hide behind others, when photos are taken?
Do you turn your head just before the flash,
So that your identity could be mistaken?
Do you wear wide sunglasses,
Or otherwise try to pull a fake?
Do you really think God made you as you are
Was really a mistake?
Everyone has beauty bone deep and some just on skin
If you learn to hate yourself, you'll never reveal the real you
Or the beauty deep within.
So go look in that mirror and see more than just yourself.
Smile at that image and invest in your emotional health.
For you are one of a kind, your uniqueness makes this true.
Not even your twin or triplet has the inner beauty that will
Always define you.
