I Own My Body

I own my body I own my pink lips and my fingertips I own my little pinky toes My elbows My knobby knees I own my slightly uneven breasts and my too-small wrists I own it all I do not want to tame my unruly curls Or make body submit to mind I own it all See my confidence In every step I own it all I love it all I own my body. Not because I can tame it and abuse it. But because I listen to it. Nourish it. Embrace it. Love it for all its perfections and for its flaws. I own my body. And I will take care of it always.
