Your Body Loves You, Love It Back

Updated: Jun 27, 2019

I know you've been told your body is a thing to be controlled

A thing to pluck, polish, push up and make perfect

You've done your best to count calories, contort yourself and stuff it all down

So that you, your emotions, your voice and your body 

Are not too loud or too big 

So that you can fit the ideal

Win approval from the critics

But as you've learned, its exhausting and never ending

And there's no love in it

It requires constant scrutiny, vigilance and calculations

Love is open, accepting, fluid and forgiving

Love meets you where you're at

With not requirements, no expectations

Just the joy and fulfillment of connection and intimacy

Gift your body the gift of love
