Embracing body hair

Where do I begin…. 

With this hair on my skin….

Its everywhere

Everybody stares in awe

You’re a girl

Why do you have hair

In between your eyesblck n white

Above your lips

Your arms

Legs

Arm Pits!

I cower in shame

Maybe I will never be a real girl

I shave and pluck

And nair my hair away

I have to be a real girl

I shave and pluck

And nair my insecurities away

I have to be like what they want

I shave and pluck

And nair myself away

Who am I

Where do I begin

With this hair on my skin

I will embrace it

It’s natural

It’s beautiful

It’s okay

To have hair

I don’t care

If I’m not who they want

If I have hair under my arms

I’ll raise it up proud

Tais always told me to keep it anyways

So let me listen to her for once

And not be ashamed of

The hair on my skin

That’s when I’ll begin

To truly love myself

Know myself

And be okay with who I really am

Not for them

Or for you

But for me

In this skin that I’m in.
