What Every Daughter Needs To Hear Every Day.

By  | 

Tell your daughters how you love your body.

Tell them how they must love theirs.

Tell them to be proud of every bit of themselves –

from their tiger stripes to the soft flesh of their thighs,

whether there is a little of them or a lot,

whether freckles cover their face or not,

whether their curves are plentiful or slim,

whether their hair is thick, curly, straight, long or short.

Tell them to love the skin they are in,

whether they are fair skinned, or dark

whether they are short, tall, big or thin

whether they are embarrassed by their scars,

or the blemishes and marks on their skin.

Tell them how beautiful they are

no matter what anyone else says

Tell them their body isn’t flawed

and how it fits them perfectly

in so many thousands of ways.

Tell them how they inherited

their ancestors’ souls in their smiles,

that their eyes carry countries

that breathed life into history,

that the swing of their hips

does not determine their destiny.

Tell them never to listen when bodies are critiqued.

Tell them every woman’s body is beautiful

because every woman’s soul is unique.
