Imagine A Woman

In celebration of International Women’s Day

 

Imagine a Woman

 

Imagine a woman who looks at the mirror

naked, and looks straight to her eyes and says

to herself, She is beautiful. Imagine that woman

so in love with herself that nobody could dump

nor put her down. She loves her curves, her full breasts

like the mountains of Madyaas, her rounded belly

her chocnut brown skin. Her stretch marks, Ah! those are

carvings of her giving birth. Her curly hair following only

the whims of the wind. Imagine that woman. The reflection

at the mirror looking at you

 

Is your Emancipated Self.
