for all of us

you are beautiful

all of your flawed furious unstoppable selves
all of your self doubt and self loathing and fears are groundless

you are floating in a medium of unspeakable beauty
unfathomable consciousness

our connections to each other 
are no less than the gossamer threads of angels light
allowing us to be
and be loved 
as we are
we are loved and love
who we are now

all of our pain and sorrow
all of our alone ness and fear of failure
and all of our fury 

shed like a sad skin
peeled like an orange
to reveal our inner beauty

and all the while 
as you are revealing your inner layer 
you are leaving behind the scent of your beauty your 
fragrant inner life force

instantly recognizable
and you are home 
right where you are 
you belong
wherever you are

this is what makes us beautiful
this is it
not the outer shell that fools worship and discard
but the soft and shaky real you
you are all beautiful
