flesh poem

 

Full poem in text:

your Body
is not your burden
it is not your beauty
though it is beautiful,
even when you don’t believe it
your Body
is yours
you cannot deny it
you should not deny it
it took you years
to own this Body again
your Body
is big and blemished and bulky
it is deserving
of the space it takes up
do not dream of shrinking
