Amour Propre

Amour Propre

How am I

to make amends with a self

that I still abuse?

How am I

to love every inch of my skin

when my love is measured on their absence?

How am I

to nurture my body

when I value the starving of it?

How am I

to foster self compassion

when brutal is what I deserve?
