Modesty

modesty

Only as an older woman
do I understand the value
of modesty.
For me, it has to do
with self-respect
of valuing myself
enough to not need
the kind of attention
immodest clothing
and behaviour invites.

On the other hand
perhaps this new found
wisdom comes with a
grandmotherly body
rather than a bikini
beautiful one instead.

M ake exposed body parts who you are
O nce beautiful, now modest
D epends on age
E very one should know their self-worth
S in starts with a thought
T ake care not to give temptation
Y ou are sacred
