Because It Is Mine

I will not apologize for my body.

Not for its size, its shape or its age.

I will not apologize for my body.

And I will not confine it in society’s cage.

I will enjoy it, live in it, love it and love in it.

I will not apologize for my body.

Not for the scars or any of the wrinkles.

I will not apologize for my body.

Or my silver hairs that twinkle.

I will celebrate it, live in it, love it and love in it.

I will not apologize for my body.

Not for its perceived shortcomings and broken bits.

I will not apologize for my body.

Or my stretch marks and sagging tits.

I will explore it, live in it, love it and love in it.

I will not apologize for my body.

Not for my pant size or weight.

I will not apologize for my body.

Or the feelings in you it creates.

I will respect it, live in it, love it and love in it.

I will not apologize for my body.

Not for its uniquely beautiful and complex design.

I will not apologize for my body.

Or its unwillingness to align.

I will embrace it, live in it, love it and love in it.

Because it is mine.
