This is my Body….

This is my body. It’s unique to me.

From the hair on my head

To the nails on my toes

It all belongs to me 

There’s no other like it

There’s no other that’s as wide

There’s no other that’s as tall

It tells the tale of my life

The tale of all i’ve been through

Every single part of me is a different page in this tale

They tell and show where i’ve been

They tell and show what i’ve done

They tell and show who i am

They show that i’m not Fat because i’m Big

They show that i’m not Dumb because i’m Black

They show that i’m not Dirty because i live in the Hood

All of them let everyone know one thing

A very very simple  thing.

It’s that ’m the first and last me there will ever be.
