Poem

My Body Is

_MG_0160

My Body is a miracle, part of a great design.

My Body is incomparable.

My Body is more than a broken reflection in a mirror.

My Body moves me to action.

My Body has limits.

My Body cannot fit any societal mold.

My Body will not be abused or objectified.

My Body has purpose.

My Body will be adored, not scrutinized.

My Body will not be labeled.

My Body holds my spirit, my intellect, my joys, and my sorrows.

My Body needs to be cared for.

My Body is a temple; I will treat it as so.

My Body is irrevocably mine for consent.

My Body will continue to serve me for the rest of my life.

I will not wish it to be any different.
