You are a beautiful woman

You are a beautiful woman
And you may scoff and roll your eyes
With a list of “but”s at the ready
But that doesn’t make it a lie
You can name those things you don’t like
Your belly is too big and your breasts are too small
Your thighs touch and your teeth are crooked
But those things are too small to contain your beauty
Your beauty can’t be contained or defined by such little things
It is held in your laughter, in a sound that carries
In the touch of your hands that soothe and comfort
In the power of your words that can change the world
So I  say “You are a beautiful woman.”
And I ask those words to root within you
To sprout, to grow, to flourish and to nourish others
Because you are a beautiful woman
