since it’s national poetry month i will be sharing more of my poetry from my new book: poetry and prose. it is nowhere near finished in fact i wanted to create 100 new peace’s for it not saying they will all make it in the book but i want completely new content.
so i wrote this poem for myself because for a long time i hated how small i was so here’s to being a woman. let me know what you think !
to my breast,
you are soft
to my hips
your small curves accentuate hill tops.
you are small and you made me insecure
i never understood how you’d be able to one day become child bearers or nurturers .
it’s you that make me a woman and yet I feel
the least bit like a woman.
But despite the ill feelings
you leave me with,
you left me to deal with
i appreciate you.
i wear clothes that most women can’t
and all though i don’t fill out some shirts,
And my butt doesn’t fill out most skirts
i know that my confidence can.
i learned through you that it’s not about the size of a woman that makes her a woman,
it’s not about the cup size of her breast
or the width of her hips
it’s about the steps she takes towards walking with confidence.
it’s knowing that with age my body will become a soul provider for another because
i am a woman
my body is considered art
motherly nature accentuates
my smallest curves to
feel as the tallest mountains
so here’s to my body, you are small and you are soft and one day children will be birthed from your slim and slightly spread child bearing hips and drink milk from soft and nurturing breast.
they say a womans best curve is her smile anyways
