“No one is born hating another person because of the color of his skin, or his background, or his religion. People must learn to hate, and if they can learn to hate, they can be taught to love, for love comes more naturally to the human heart than I

When you're in a rut,

Think of all the reasons why

You used to love yourself.

Before people started telling you

What's pretty and what's not.


I love my eyebrows because they're bushy

And they're mine. 

I love my little leaf-shaped ears

Because they're mine.

I love my toes.

I get them from my dad.

My nose.

Exactly my mom's.

My shoulders.

Because they are strong.

But even if they weren't strong,

I'd love them anyway

Because they are mine.
