I Am the Gem

I see myself as a gem

I know mysef as a gem

A mirror does not have to show me this

Photos cannot embody my natural spirit

I see myself

I love myself

I am the gem

From every little pore

To the continuation of my skin tone on my body

I see myself

I love myself

I am the gem

Strength grows within me

My eyes see clearer, bolder

My heart flutters and I walk swiftly, proudly

A smile is seen from miles away

Always brilliant with self-love to show

I see myself

I love myself

I am the gem

The outside world cannot push me down, hide me away

I arise from the beauty of the multi-colored canvas

I was blessed upon

I was born with

I see myself

I love myself

I am the gem

This poem is the complete truth of how I feel about myself. I believe it is a gift to have self-love. I also know it is possible for every single individual in the world to experience this as well.
