legs for days & smiles for miles

You look at yourself
in the mirror and you’re
unhappy with what you
see, but I can promise
you that anyone who is
standing before you will
tell you the opposite
of what you tell yourself.
You want to be newer,
prettier, thinner, but I can
safely say that the only
thing that needs to change
is your mind. You are not
worthless, and you’ve always
been useful, so tell your
head to give your heart a break
for a couple of days. You’ve
been going through a constant
battle with your body, and all
your skin is trying to do is
love you, so love it back.
Tell it everything that the boys
who just wanted a taste told
you, because even if they
wanted you for a moment,
there has always been honesty
in their words. So repeat
those sentences to yourself.
Burn those convincing paragraphs
into your fucking skin because
you deserve to hear the truth.
You are a goddamn storm,
both beautiful and destructive.
And no one can stop you
just because they are masking
the truth with their fear.

She is not “my girl.”

She belongs to herself, and to all of the world. And I am blessed, for with all her freedom, she still comes back to me, moment-to-moment, day-by-day, and night-by-night.

How much more blessed can I be?
