Who is this woman, so ashamed of herself?
I want to pull my lover in close and ask “Have I done anything wrong?”
But that is ridiculous as I have done nothing wrong.
I have only been myself.
Every day I battle the fear of being myself.
If there is anything sickening about me, it is the shame I cover myself in to hide and apologize for who I am.
Forgive yourself for those moments of shame, beautiful woman.
There is nothing wrong with you, even when afraid.
