Questions to you

image

How do I learn to love myself
when I have been taught to shut my mouth
whenever I needed to scream.

How do I learn to appreciate a beating heart within those fragile ribs,
when I have been taught to sacrifice it for anyone,
except for myself.

How do I learn to value my body
while magazines have called it names,
too this and too that,
but never quite enough.

Tell me, how do I learn to love all that I am,
when I have been taught to despise
everything
I ever was.
