I am growing up to be ME

Image result for judgemental

You may know me
but not the real me

you may see my pain
but never felt it

you may see my wound
but not my scars

you may see my failure
but not the reason

you may see my success
but never the path

you may see my smile
but not the tears I hide

do not judge me
As you never know what I dealt with

Stop perceptions
I may not be what you think
I may not be what you want me to be

I am what I ever have to be
I am carved out of stoneĀ 
engraved with all the fears and tears
nourished with all successes and triumphs
unknown to you, or known to you
stand by my side
yet you may never know what goes inside me

I am growing up to be ME.

Fat or thin
Tall or short
None makes us stand out
being a woman makes me unique

let me eat peacefully
don’t judge my plate by my size
I may eat less, I may eat more

I may be pregnant

I may be a mom
I may be still young
I may look inflated or fragile
I still love myself
For being just ME

My reflection in the mirror
echoes my beauty
I am born to be awesome
And differently built.
