A Mother's Body

The Beauty Of It!

Selena Willis October 01, 2022 Post Comments

My body is poetry, just read in-between the lines,
After 9 months of carrying a growing being, my body STILL shines!
I went through so much pain to gain these stripes,
And they come in all different sizes and types.
My body doesn't define me as a woman,
It just adds to or subtracts from my new cushion.

I am STILL a strong woman,
Rather, I do this with help, or alone.
My strength in this hard time will be shown.
How do I do this?
How did I survive that?
With my mental,
We are built for combat.

You see, your beauty is still there,
It's just under the blanket of guilt you wear.
Don't ever give up, cry if you need!
Your body is poetry,
In between these lines they must read.

Selena Willis ( Writer & Poet )

Selena is an emotional, deep writer, and poet by heart. Often times she comes up with uniquely, crafted, thought-provoking pieces that often times seem surreal to even fathom, but keep in mind that sometimes her literatures are not intended to be taken literally. I believe her pieces are meant to expose the raw truth about the many conflictions we, as humans, have to deal with on a daily basis. Not only in a physical nature, but a spiritual one at best. If we be honest and transparent with ourselves, we can relate to this very fact. A spiritual battle wages on behind the canopy of this carnal world, and one of the prized possessions the enemy wants to get a hold on is, your mind. Selena's goal in sharing her literature is to bless others and to let you know, you are never alone in this thing called life.
