I was Planted here Naked

I was planted here naked, bare soul and body.

A cell of expression

Prospering blossom

Reveling flowers of all frames and sizes

We may germinate in darkness

But we do not thrive in shadows and shame

We rise in the light

And though they try to rip us out

And push us back into the ground

Our roots bridge and grow sturdy

I was planted right here

Just the way I’m supposed to be

Unjudged and ordinary as an open heart

I am nature

So are my stretch marks and scars

We trace our birthmarks to the stars

I was planted here naked, bare soul and body.
