Vanity Is A Must

I finally believe it
I know what I am
I know what I'm not
I really am worth more than shit
without a shred of vanity I admit (cos it so ain't me)
I am beautiful.
it's taken a long time to say it.
but it's true
I share myself to a world of strangers, whom will never know me
but at some level know me better than my own mother.
i am worth it.
I look like this because I do
I will never make apologises again.
I will never use it to get somewhere (maybe just a few drinks, now and again)
'world here I am'
so ready for this new life, that will not be based on my face
I am so worth it
as I am beautiful

the great truth of being alive to our own beauty then no harm can touch our flesh nor rip the heart to shreds and that you have found this truth and proclaim it to all THIS deserves the highest praise and if only one soul is turned from self-loathing to inner love you have given a gift beyond time a great poem
