A Girl In Love With Herself

To those who struggle to love themselves: May you walk in eternal serenity with yourself

She is sunlight

but she is also moonlight

radiation and reflection

nothing has changed but the way she has chosen to shine


She is an intricate spider web

but she is also the fly caught in it

captivating and imprisoned

nothing has changed except what she has decided to hold


She is a rainbow

but she is also the cloud that hides it

revealing and concealing

nothing has changed except her ability to be seen


She is an American Shorthair

but she is also a lioness

intimate and untouchable

nothing has changed but the power she presents


She is in love with herself

but she also strives for growth

knowing her limits

but challenging them time and time again.


She is in love with duality 

because she knows the power of contrast

she is an open book

but it’s written in Latin
