Be You

When we love a person, we accept him or her exactly as is: the lovely with the unlovely, the strong with the fearful, the true mixed in with the façade, and of course, the only way we can do it is by accepting ourselves that way.

–Fred Rogers

There is no shame in eyes
no matter what secrets tucked away,
Hidden beneath toughened skin
not skinned knees
but broken bones, rattling
Insides squeezed by enemies

Your mind far worse
Than the men who curse
the lady who spawns greedy hands
When you show another they matter
no matter what
There is no shame in eyes.
