Olivia has opened up in a new social media post...
Former Love Island runner-up Olivia Buckland has just stunned fans by posting a very personal poem on social media.
She captioned the post: ‘I don’t usually share things like this. It’s a part of me no one really knows. Alex took this photo of me today and it inspired me to write.’
The poem reads:
‘This is me in this photo, it’s me at my best.
‘I’ve not brushed my hair, and there’s dirt on my vest.
‘My skin is not flawless, not on my face or my legs.
‘My body is content, my mind is at rest.
‘So close to the earth, so grounded, so calm.
‘I think we forget that we all have a palm, we all have a hand;
‘We all have the same ability to stand.
‘I am like you, and you like me.
‘I am human, I am blood and I am flesh.
‘Can we sit for a minute to reflect & refresh?
‘Lest we forget the world is our key.
It’s for the place, the home, inside you & me.’
The blonde beauty blogger also added in a separate tweet: ‘You can interpret it how it feels to you. I wrote it from really far inside my mind. It’s not meant to make sense to everyone. Enjoy x’.
