dear body

dear body

when did i lose sight of your beauty

when did i first start to think that i needed to

fix you

flatten you

mold you

shave you

change you

after all those years of

depriving you

abusing you

ignoring you

here we are

i am listening

i celebrate you for you are a vessel carrying the most precious passenger

i find joy in your softness and curves

i find peace through your movements

i wear your new tiger stripes with pride as your skin stretches and expands

i once wished for you to be small

and now i want you to be big

i want to you to grow and take up space

you have a whole world inside of you and i want to you look like it

dear body

you are a fucking miracle

and i promise to never forsake you again
