white heart illustration

This is my body,

The body I love,

My own skin, my own flesh,

I’ve been in here for 15 years,

No matter how many people say I’m less, because of my color,

My gender,

My looks,

This is my body, and I love it.

My body, my one and only, the one I will be in forever,

The one I have to love for the next years of my life,

The body I have to look at, for the next years of my life,

My body is my friend, that has seen so much,

My two eyes,

My Two arms,

My two hands

And my Two legs.

The two eyes that help me see, cry,

The two arms that help me write, type,

The two hands that help grab, 

The two legs that help me walk, run,

Look at the many things my body can do,

Look at my body, it’s not like you,

We are different in our own ways, I love my body, is what you should also say.
