fall in love with yourself
the way that you want
to be loved.

stop letting strangers take
refuge in your body.

you are not a
momentary place.

you were not built to be
someone’s hideaway
or vacation house.

you were not designed
to handle people
walking in and out
of your life.

your body is tired
of hurting.

tell these short-term
visitors to leave.

the scratches and
scuff marks left by
their careless actions
do not define you.

you expect abandonment.
permanence feels foreign.
someone staying feels
unnatural to you.

but please remember that
you deserve to be
so much more than a
resting spot for someone
to briefly stop at, and
continue on their way.

despite what you may
believe about yourself,
you are not temporary.

please, be kind to yourself.

as you travel through life,
remember that it doesn’t matter
whether you believe it or not.
you are worth it.
and not believing that doesn’t
make it any less true.

please, stop searching
for another guest.

find someone who
feels less like a tourist,
and more like a home.

Is there anything wrong with a muffin top?
They’re so soft and tasty, shove them in your gob.

Bingo wings? Hey, bingo gave me the thrill of a
lifetime and wings, well, just think of the joy they’d bring.

An orange peel **** is perfect to sink your fingers into.
Feel the juice. Baby I’m proud of this thick caboose.

If you can’t handle love handles and take a firm grip
then get out of my lane you weak handed wimp.
I keep seeing workout videos called 'get rid of your muffin top'. Why are we encouraged to become smaller, we'll eventually disappear.

When you get knocked down
You got to pick yourself up
And shine even brighter
Then before

You deserve the best in life
Regardless of how much
You have
Failed or disappointed

You have an impact on this world
Even if you do not see it
Someone somewhere
Is happy knowing
You're on this planet

Keep taking it one day
At a time

I initially wrote this for a friend but I hope it helps you.

In a moment of serendipitous sweetness
You grimace bitterly,
you do not like walking down paths
covered in roses.
You would rather wallow alone,
Coughing up reasons
to be angry at this shallow world,

But it follows you buzzing
even when you’ve muted your colours.

Solitude is like a
feathered embrace.
Like a swell of moonlight
on dewy,
And should you go looking
for the magick--
for the secrets
in stillness
and beats
that stretch for miles,
from one
to another,
you’ll find realms of
untold dreams.
Rheems of
bursting starlight,
of long-squashed fantasies
in demand
of your attention.
Daydreams that unwind
until you’ve found
what you were searching for:
the secret,
you hadn’t known
were long-since missing.
Without suffering, there is silence.

Paint the future
Paint it bright
Young ones don't deserve
The path of plight

Speak the future
Tell the tale
Speak the future
Take back that veil

Live the future
It's not that dark
Live the future
Be that spark
+ve energy for a Monday morning. We should be upping the anty and showing the kids what a wonderful world it is. Ignore negativity.

Achievement; You've managed to post a selfie!
Somebody might think its funny considering it as one of your goals,
Somebody refers it a piece of cake,
Like every morning til afternoon,
A quick snap wont bite them,
But for you?
There's nothing greater than you're proudest moments,
Building you're self - confidence,
Positivity, throwing off anxiety out of your roof,
After somebody already ruined it for you,
But congratulations!
You're step ahead of becoming yourself,
You've been on a deep snooze,
Living in you're comfort zone,
And now you've managed to showed a self portrait,
Without hesitations,
Or doubts,
Just a bold smile,
And a bravery of not giving a f*ck.
