To think that I can be me, just as I am

To think that I can be me, just as I am
chips and cracks and glories and all
is an incredible thought;
it’s like that singular moment
where, after wearing shackles
you freeze in nakedness, disbelieving your freedom
and then you believe
and then you run

    Examining our chips and cracks is the best place to begin when searching for the self-love that many of us have struggled with. Wonderful words.
