Destiney Defined

 I was always ashamed of my hips
 I never embraced my thighs
 my breasts have never been the ideal size
 my body has always been on the softer side
 my hair has always been kinky and textured
 my feet have never been small and dainty
 I have always been stuck in between short and tall
big and small
 until one day
I opened my eyes to me
after a lifetime of being ashamed and vulnerable to change
I fell in love with those thighs
that soft body and that original hair that is truly mine
the physical appearance of a girl forming into a woman
I opened my eyes
and I fell in love with me
