As Defined By You


I am imperfect and so:
will not be defined by
my skin my height my age
my income my job my home
my weakness
my failures
my fears


Because I am imperfect:
I am defined by
my laughing eyes
my imagination
the sway in my hips
my warmth my love my laugh
my sensuality my sexuality my wit
my strength my intelligence my beauty

Because I am imperfect:
Take it or leave it.

[apologies to all, someone peed in my Wheaties]
