dear body…

dear body,

i promise to love you better.

you are amazing after all.

you formed life within your womb.

and gave birth to perfection.

you even created sustenance to nourish that miracle.


i’ve seen you expand + shrink on more than one occasion.

you are magical, in fact.

i think that you deserve the best.

i haven’t always been willing to give you that.

i’ve spoken harshly about you, as if you were somehow inadequate.

i’ve stared at you in dismay.

i’ve wondered who could love you after all that you have endured?

but, I do.

I do love you…

you’ve carried my soul even when it felt like it couldn’t go on.

+ danced to reflect my joy.

and most of all…you are mine.

and you are enough.
