When the sunlight hits my body I no longer fear the parts it highlights and kisses. I no longer fear the parts it leaves in darkness creating ripples across my skin. . I'm no longer afraid of my skin. I'm no longer afraid of taking up space. I'm no longer afraid of the way I look. I'm no longer ashamed of who I am. . When the sunlight hits my body I now bask in its warmth and appreciate the vitamin D without cowering away and hiding. . I've set my soul free, it's not longer held captive by my body/vessel, it appreciates life for every blessing that it is.
