grow into acceptance

acceptance something i loathe for 

deep within needing closure

but still unsure what i endure

see my core is not strong

i stay bewilding myself more 

self acceptance i assure

too tall too wide

not the right stride 

why must i enhance this cry

my size not right

my diet not light

embedding myself in exposure

what more 

encore to my well being 

accept yourself 

before gaining acknowledgement

from another being 

pleading to accept the grievance

this unruly pain 

that i keep mistreating

my body my temple

lord its deceiving

not the figure i am retrieving 

self assurance 

i need some believing
