Rupi Kaur over body positivity

I like the way the stretch marks
On my thighs look human and
That we’re so soft yet
Rough and jungle wild
When we need to be
I love that about us
How capable we are of feeling
How unafraid we are of breaking
And tend to our wounds with grace
Just being a woman
Calling myself
A woman
Makes me utterly whole
And complete

We are all born
So beautiful

The greatest tragedy is
Being convinced we are not

Look down at your body
Whisper
There is no home like you
– Thank you

I made change after change
On the road to perfection
But when I finally felt beautiful enough
The definition of beauty
Suddenly changed

What if there is no finish line
And in attempt to keep up
I lose the gifts I was born with
For a beauty so insecure
It can’t commit to itself
– The lies they sell

Their concept of beauty
Is manufactured
I am not
– Human

Live loud and proud like you deserve
And reject their bullshit definition
Of what a woman should look like

Give me laugh lines and wrinkles
I want proof of the jokes we shared
Engrave the lines into my face like
The roots of a tree that grow deeper
With each passing year
I want sunspots as souvenirs
For the beaches we laid on
I want to look like I was
Never afraid to let the world
Take me by the hand
And show me what it’s made of
I want to leave this place knowing
I did something with my body
Other than trying to
Making it look perfect

Your beauty is undeniable
But everything sacred and ancient in you
Is even more stunning
