Shirtless

She exposed herself
Bared her scars
For all to see
Her bravery
Evident
Treatment needed
Love desired
Beautiful imperfection
Reflecting
Healing progress
Owning her self
Knowing her scars
Were proof of
Just how far she'd come
None could take that from her
She had found her power
She was more beautiful than ever
Regardless of what anyone else
Thought or saw
She was beautiful
She was already loved
And now she knew it

He exposed himself
Bared his chest
For all to see
His softness
Evident
Reflecting his
Obvious growth
Relaxation needed
Love desired
Beautiful imperfection
Owning his self
Knowing his appearance
Was proof of
How much he'd grown
Even admitting his past
Had less than stellar decisions
None could take that from him
He had found himself
He was more beautiful than ever
Regardless of what anyone else
Thought or saw
He was beautiful
He was already loved
And he was beginning to see it

They were two very different people
Living two very different paths
Both were equally amazing
Both were equally wonderful
They were learning and growing
They were being human
They are loved
By those around them
And by God
Growth is all we seek
Expansion is our life
Everything that builds us
Lifts us up
Keeps us going
Makes our world a better place
That is God's work

They are doing it
So can you
Be brave
Grow in beautiful imperfection
Find your self
Know you are loved
It's all that is needed
To help our world heal
