Being Feminine

image1 (1).jpeg

Follicles on my thigh

give rise to beginnings

conversation starters

creation of a fuzzy world

a new universe

existing within me

I do not judge nature

For the way it thrives

Or manifests itself

Through me

The pimples across my cheeks

form contour lines

giving a false sense

of beauty

Naturally beautiful

Unconventionally attractive

I need to find a way to merge

The sides I am always receiving

And reflecting in turn

From afar I am familiar

Up close not so much

On the cusp

of an edge

I am there, being

Trying to find ways

To manifest myself

Without hurting anyone in the process

I cannot give anything

To you

Until I learn

To be selfless
