For the girls,

For the girls who put their bodies before their heart

For the girls who were sweet to the touch

Made of milk and honey

Skin smooth as silk

Becoming worn out souls,

Bodies and minds

The bitter taste of regret

Set in cold, plastic, mannequin hearts

For the girls who put their bodies before their minds,

Take your time

Figure it out

You are only ever coming home to yourself

The author's comments:

When you are young, growing and still discovering yourself, it is often so easy to get caught up in things that don't really matter. I wrote this piece not only has a reminder to my fellow girls to respect and cherish yourself, but also as a reminder to myself to always practice self love and acceptance.
