Dancing in The Mirror

as i am dancing around my tiny bathroom, in my short shorts

i stop for just a fraction of a moment to look in the mirror
i see my reflection staring right back at me

i look closer...

i see how my eyes are as blue as the deep, lovely oceans of Neptune 

i see how my smile is like a light bulb that illuminates a room with the flip of one little switch

i see my stature, i see how it is almost like a flower just sprouting and learning to grow

i see how in the inside of my inner thighs have stretch marks that are rippled like the sea waves on a sandy beach shore

i smile...
and i start to notice all the beautiful little things about me
and i noticed how they combined to make a exquisite masterpiece
as i sit there i wonder why it took me so long to finally think this way about this perfect creation
but it doesn't matter
because now is the time to turn it around
and find self love

i back away from the mirror

and i start dancing

This poem is darling! It has lifted my spirits, and I am so honored to have read it. I had not heard the term"short shorts" in a long, time. I had forgotten we used to use that all the time. Nicely done! A self actualizing affirming poem.

Self love is the key to everything, if you do not have self love you struggle to do most things you aspire to do :) Thank you for your kind words, I hope you enjoyed :)
