Wabi Sabi


“God I hate myself,” you say,

standing in front of the mirror

thinking your nose is big,

and thighs too huge

for a waist that's not 23.

We are all flawed,

exasperated by the failed attempts,

at putting on the perfect eyeliner,

but darlin',

even Aphrodite has

her own imperfections.

So when you wake up tomorrow,

I want you to see

the beauty you hold within,

behind those scars you descry.

know that you're enough

even if people tell you otherwise.

This, I want you to promise me.
