Creative fun in
the palm of your hand.

This poem is about finding self love and acceptance :) Enjoy!
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, and how it is 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...
I start to notice all the beautiful little things about me,
and iInoticed 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.
