Body Positivity

'Most Myself' by Danielle Bezalel (DB)


When do I feel most myself?

It is when

I touch my soft belly,

Feel my smooth skin,

Sing on a stage

When I look

In the mirror and am tingling

At the sight of me

When I can articulate the

Most complex web of who I am

To myself and to the ones I love

At the beach

Full stop

In between asleep and awake

On my bleach stained towel

When I look into my own eyes

At the ridges of my teeth

At the curve of my breast

When do I feel most myself?

Most me?

When my body matches

My mind
