When I exhale-

I exhale an old version of myself.

I release all that you say I

no longer need.

I breathe out the judgement of others

that I wore like a cloak.

I excrete the foul stench

of self-disdain.

I reject the flawed perceptions

assigned me.


When I inhale-

I inhale you.

I take in all you give to me

and cherish it.

I breathe in the acceptance

you surround me with.

I absorb all the delicious aroma

you adorn me in.

I accept my reflection is

beautiful in your eyes.
