Love, for me.
I have crossed the oceans, swam the seas.
I have fought the battles, won the wars.
I have braved the fires, braced the storms.
I have dwelled in cities, craved for nature.
I have lived the summers, waited out the winters.
I have burnt the bridges, built the walls.
I have met with death, sought out the births.
Amidst all this I have found love.
Love for beginnings, love for ends.
Love for friendship and their bends.
Love for music, love for dance.
Love for passion, love for romance.
Love for magic and its subtlity.
Love for fate and its reality.
Love for grace and its quirks.
Love for beauty and its perks.
Love to learn, love to be on the run.
Love to give, love to win.
Love for everything from within.
But most of all,
I have learnt love for me.
Love for every atom that makes up my being ;
Love for the body that festers my soul.
Love for every flaw, every scar, every mark on me.
Love for my colour, my curves and my mind that makes up me.
Learnt I have to love my hair, my eyes, my lips, my ears, my nose, my breasts.
Learnt I have to love my hands, my legs, my heart and appreciate them for all that they have done.
Learnt I have to love the calls Mother Nature pays me every month.
So truly, so fiercely, so strongly I have come to love me.
For if I don't
Then who will?
