PROMPT: Self-Love

9
​I will not hate myself for these legs. 

I will love myself for my voice. 

​I will not hate myself for my laugh. 

I will love myself for my stupid jokes. 

I will not hate myself for stumbling over words. 

I will love myself for the way I manipulate my words on paper. 

I will not hate myself for my face studded with acne. 

I will love myself for the glitter that I glide across my face. 

​I will not hate myself for being clumsy. 

I will love myself for the times I walk like a queen. 

and for good measure, 

​I will love my personality.
