My time in Portland is coming closer to a close. The timeline I’m working towards is coming into view. This means celebrating each day with the people here I cherish the most. One of my favorite artists (Lizzo) is coming to Portland the weekend before I leave Portland. This song hit my Spotify, I’ve heard it so many times, yet, this is the first time I really HEARD it.
I wear my flaws on my sleeve and my skin like a peacoat
I see someone like me ashamed to be
And honestly, I’m really really
I’m fed up with’ it, try to send it up like a FedEx
I’m wondering what they sayin’ next
Can’t pretend to not hear it
It’s your beauty, they can’t have it
It’s yours, they can’t have it
It’s your skin, you woke up in it and it is beautiful.
