Dearest Me

Learn to love
your lumps and bumps
aches and pains
that wobbly tum
many weight gains
your uneven skin
that crooked smile
that lip too thin
those awful piles
your smelly feet
the unruly hair
your jagged teeth
and skin too fair
your large behind
the wrinkly surface
the mysterious mind
the endless curviness
that pot belly
the crooked didgets
those areas smelly
you are what you are its true
you will be what you will be
learn to love me
love from you xx
