Your Value

Your value does not lie

in your number on the scale

nor the circumference of your thighs

it is not measured by the size of your bicep

visibility of your abs

or the prevalence of your hips

it is not judged by the clarity of your skin

the shine of your hair

or the stain on your lips

It is sizable by the depth of your soul

what lies beneath your skin –

pull back your layers

split open your ribcage

and let the beauty of your soul swell

as your blossoming thoughts

moonlit dreams

and star speckled goals


pouring over your edges

releasing your inner most desires

bearing me your heart
