Birthday Suit

 

 

Birthday suit - The best to wear

Elastic-tastic shell

Magic suit grows as you do

And always fits so well

 

Don't squeal eww and ich and yuck

When leaping from the bath

Wipe the mirror clean of steam

Towel-dance and laugh

 

Nothing beats the feeling when

You're natural, young and free

Baby-naked in the world

Like you were born to be

 

So next time you are all alone

In your protective suit

Feel the breeze around your bits

Face yourself. Salute!

 

Toast the person who you are

Kiss yourself. Be proud

Body beautiful, unique

Enjoy! You are allowed

 

Wait before you pull on jeans

Embarrassed, full of shame

Mirrors are for looking in

Admire your super-frame

 

Stick your bum out. Shake it wild!

Beyoncé on the mat

Cart wheel, back spin, somersault

Above the flipping cat

 

Never would you go to school

With everything exposed

Not unless you've lost your brain

(Or reaaally hate your clothes)

 

But those moments all alone

Just me, myself and I

Bathe in all your gorgeousness

And don’t submit to shy

 

Love the hidden parts as much

Your secret, beating dreams

Inside-outside wizardry

A body wonder team

 

And never let the labels scar

or stitch onto your heart

Rip them out and throw them out

They weren’t there at the start

 

May you wear it long and well

Designer suit of birth

A tailored, one-off miracle

A stunning beast of Earth
