Real Women Have Curves

I found this gem on Chatty Lass's blog and I snitched it. Just couldn't resist it.

Real Women Have Curves

by Alexx A. McCoy

Real women have curves, wrinkles and flaws
Each earned with experience, perseverance and determination
Let no computer airbrush your mistakes
Let them make you who you are

Love every mark, every scar, every extra curve you wished to go away
Accept what you can't learn to love
Then let go of what you can't accept
Treasure them for their memories
Like a worn love letter or ratty old quilt from generations of old

Each wrinkle comes with the wisdom only years of life can give
And life is not to be hidden or covered up
For life is how a girl grows into a woman
And real women have curves.

I got featured on your blog! Woohoo..

I have had this poem for some time now and I think that it epitomises how a real woman should be and what a real woman is.

P/S: I will return the favour by linking you on my page too =)
