    Looking back in retrospect, I thought I had it going on.
    For me, big has always been around me, so to become big
    was a part of my destiny, so I thought.

    Still not little, but smaller than I was I looked at me through the mirror.
    I looked at me in the front, on the side; with clothes, without clothes
    ... But I don't like what I see.

    It hurts to know that I am healing because I thought change from my old self
    would be better so I could enhance my new self.
    ... But I don't like what I see.

    Don't look at me, I know that no one could love me in this state,
    No one can see the beauty I once thought I possessed,
    ... Because I don't like what I see.

    I know I will heal and everything will be better and the beauty
    I once possessed will again be revealed to me,
    But until then, don't make me see what you see,
    Because I'm having a big problem with loving me.

    One day soon, I'll stand in that mirror and I'll smile at the work
    of mans hands, and when that day comes I'll share my joy with you
    Meanwhile, I am learning to love me all over again.

    Often it's difficult to love what one sees, especially if it's not what we have seen of ourselves in the past. Many struggle with this. Keep the flows coming.

    Deep...

    <condenses into a solid and falls to the floor as rain>

    Now this is a very deep and revealing piece of poetry.
    I felt every nuance as if you were speaking to me face to face instead of me just reading your words. Don't you just love when poetry has that effect?

    Enjoyed the read, and I have my eyes closed, but my mind is open so keep speaking sista, keep speaking...
