Worth

Valerie

I worry when you don't look at my body,

for the boys of my past 

have done nothing

but only validate my figure.

Do you see me

if I'm more than just a body for you?

If not constantly oversexualized,

then what good does my presence hold?

 

Trying my hardest to hold your interest

without putting myself out.

Hoping the view 

is still as good

when it's just my smile.

    there's a song by India Arie
    titled 'Private Party'
    whose lyrics include these poignant lines below:
    'I'm having a private party
    Ain't nobody here but me, my angels, and my guitar, singin'
    "Baby, look how far we've come, yeah"
    I'm havin' a private party
    Learning how to love me
    Celebrating the woman I've become, yeah
    I'm gonna take off all my clothes
    Look at myself in the mirror
    We're gonna have a conversation
    We're gonna heal the disconnection
    I don't remember when it started
    But this is where it's gonna end
    My body is beautiful and sacred
    And I'm gonna celebrate it'..
    (see personally, write like yours
    and music with lyrics like India
    is what female empowerment
    and gender equality, should represent
    'in my humble opinion'..
    it's begins, with that veracity
    in answer
    to that ever-doubtful, reflection
    in the mirror!
    celebrate your beauty, it is yours
    but never, be defined or limited
    by it - alone!
    'and if your partner, can't see beyond
    then that's their loss
    and your que, to move on...')

      Don't worry! I know it's scary, but I have a feeling this guy wont be anything like the others. Trust. 🙂

      Some guys like to see what else is in your body, and most times that would be you. Keep smiling.
