Some days the pink hue of my cheeks makes me want to tear my skin from my face, screaming.
it’s a glowing reminder that I am alive.
Some days the wild wave of my hair makes me wish I could be anybody,
I shake it free and let the wind blow through it as if it were leaves in a tree.
Some days the white glow of my legs makes me want to cover up and hide,
too sickly pale for Fashion’s standards.
I laugh at myself for skin merely covers bone!
the shape of my toes
the curve of my stomach
the scars of my past
every nuance of my outer self
make me wish I was more.
More sun kissed
More! More! More!
I catch my reflection and marvel at the woman I’ve become.
The happiness in my smile
The kindness in my eyes
The grace in my walk.
Some days are hard,
Others are wonderful .
Everyday I am alive.
I am feeling.
I Am Enough.
– Louise Cully – Poem
