I've Decided To Love Myself

I've decided to love myself
I've decided to embrace my braces
and soft tummy
small curves and bumpy arms
I intend to love my flutter brain tendencies and astronaut orbits
I'm not bad at math; I just have a higher concentration of pixie dust in my blood
than most
There are pay offs you have to make when you're born a poet
common sense, for example
And I'm going to start complimenting myself,
when I look in the mirror
instead of finding every flaw, I will trace constellations in my eyes
comment on my high cheek bones and long lashes, gentle waist
That's how I will define my body; gentle
I don't lack muscle definition, I am a gentle soul, gentle body
I am of Botticelli's spring
soft skin, flowing white limbs
I've decide to love myself
Because I only have one life time as this person
and I'm not going to change
I've already spent enough of these sixteen years
molding my skin and soul into a form I'll never hold
I will not say anymore
“I'll probably be pretty when I'm older.”
or “Maybe I'll be smarter..”
As of today, I am officially
And I've made myself the authority on that
I am now the only voice of authority that can truly determine what I'm worth
And according to myself, I've decided I am worth a lot
No one can deny me respect, acceptance, and love
besides myself
Because I said so.
And after so long debating whether my word was of value
Why wouldn't it be?
So from this day forward,
I love myself, my spirit, my soul,
my gentle body and brains
Because why shouldn't I?
