& today, I looked in the mirror and
a smile as wide as my once-broken heart
grown the size of my now loving soul
& I saw something amazing
that only I can truly see.
I saw a strong, confident
so fucking beautiful
& I jumped around the room in glee
heart bursting, bursting, bursting!
as I realize
omigod omigod omigod
I love myself
for who I am
and what I saw
not for what others think of me.
