Self Hatred and other Rubbish

For those who quit trying

to realign their bodies

For those who gave up trying

to revamp their personalities

For those who stopped trying

to alter their appearance

For those who no longer try

to hide behind their clothes

For those who relinquished trying

to blur the lines of truth & fiction

For those who never tried

to wear a mask for every situation

For those who refrain from trying

to reset their personal preferences

If you’re done trying to be someone else

If you’re ready to let go of the recriminations

In the quiet of an open mind and

 the contentment of a softened heart

You will be pleased to find

What it is I love about you
