from Maya Angelou - "A Great Soul"--this poem captures so much of what I feel about all of the poems that I love...that this is a way to enter into special time spent with a great soul and that soul's momentary glimpse of the holy.
You don't need to be beautiful, you ARE beautiful. We were born beautiful, and despite all the growth, nothing about our innate beauty has changed. I'd say, own that. Know your beauty. Be sure you're the one defining what that is. And, dare to look beyond flesh and bone. But dare to love the beauty of your body too. It's all kinda necessary.-Heather
