Love Beyond

Love myself from within.
Beyond acceptance.
Making love to myself
in this sacred ritual that creates life.

My life.

A life birthed
every time that I love
a numbed and neglected part of my figure,
every time that I love
a shamed trait that makes me who I am,
every time that I voice a truth silenced before.

Beyond acceptance.

Beyond accepting my curves
as something I have to live with,
but fiercely loving them as a those voluptuous attempts of my body
to express my flaming womanhood.

Beyond accepting my darkness
as something I need to transform into light,
but proudly shedding light there
to express the full extent of my life.

Loving the fact there is nothing in myself I have to live with
but rather that all of me is there to be lived.
