b e i n g

you are a human b e i n g

not a doll, not a mannequin. un-doctored and un-enhanced.

you are made of callouses and flesh and freckles. not plastic and chemicals.

skin that stretches

bones that break

scars that heal

why are you surprised when your stomach rolls, when your hips widen, when the corners of your eyes begin to wrinkle?

you are breathing, beating, bleeding

stop being surprised when your body screams to the world that you are alive.
