When the light is strong enough I wake up, and I’m born a new woman every day.
I like staring at my hands and knowing they will help me build symbols and objects of value.
I want my hands and body to be fast but I also want them to be graceful.
Getting dressed means choosing a companion for your skin.
Even if your body acts as a canvas. Putting on some clothes makes me feel almost as good as I feel when I’m completely naked.
I’ve observed how my words grow between my chest and my back.
My curves rest inside a warm hug.
I cherish the possibility of transforming every action into a game.
So I protect my cells from the ice and the fire.
Exactly like a poem I write for my skin and soul.
With colors that are friendly to my heart, they feel smooth and close to me.
Fabrics that help me become a superwoman. Soft, comforting, but somehow, unbreakable.
I’m entering a world of genuine power.
