love your body
love your body
feel its curves and planes
softness and hard edges
folds and hidden hollows
smoothness skin
roughness scars
for if you don't won't can't
how will anyone else love it?
how will you allow them?
and if, when, no-one else does
even if only for a little while
even if for all your life (and are you sure?
it's not just you who loves undeclared)
its beauty will be loved
by you
