I Like Me! - Poem by Stevie Taite

I love my legs
There I said it wooohoooo
And my boobs aren't that bad
For a mother of two

My legs are quite long
And I use them to run
My boobs are quite small
But they're still bags of fun

The rest of my body
Can't really complain
Though it took some hard graft
Convincing my brain

My face isn't classic
According to who
Some magazine monkeys
With 'photoshop' glue

I'm not getting younger
But strangely it seems
I like myself more
Than I did in my teens!

When the crows feet just stayed 
Even after the laughter
I was sad for a bit
But life's still good after!

I've been through dark phases
Feeling rough in my skin
But I found a real beauty
When I searched from

I've thrown those thoughts out
I am thankful and free
Now I'm not holding back
I have grown to love me!

Poet's Notes about The Poem

I wrote this this morning. Sometimes it's good to realise how lucky you actually are and embrace it a little! It's not vanity, it's being happy with what you have and making the most of it! I am sure I will still have 'fat/ugly' days but I will soon shake my silly self out of it! ! ! ! !

    Confidence is the most attractive thing you can wear. This piece points that out, and positive thinking is contagious. Thanks for shaing. (Report) Reply

    Stevie, what a beautiful, delightfull write you have here, it resounds with self confidience and self love that we all need to have, especially when we have moments of self doubt. Great write! ! ! If you are curious to read smoe of my words, you'll find A Rose By Anyother Name, to your liking, as well as many others.
