Today, I woke up and I saw myself.

Not the person I usually see

Not the girl that has to be dressed up with hair freshly done to be beautiful.

I saw myself.

Freshly awoken with crusts in my eyes and my hair all matted.

I saw myself.

Shirt falling off my shoulder and rank morning breath.

I saw myself.

Pudgy tummy and legs that desperately need to be shaved.

I saw what you see in me. 

Beauty.

I saw what you always call "flawless".
