My double chin

I shaved off my beard today
So I can see my double chin.
I almost don’t want to hide it anymore.
I almost don’t mind it.
It’s almost not mine to hide,
Not yours to judge.
My beard hides my shame,
My mothers’ shame,
So it’s hard to do without.
I almost missed my double chin.
It reminds me of my mother;
I got it from her
And she’s the sweetest thing.
My double chin teaches me
To love my body, see my body,
Just like my mother loves me,
Sees me.
And I never really liked it.
I was never a big fan of it.
My double chin.
But I love the love.
