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
