This Body Is Mine

This Body Is Mine

We are curvy
with more handles than we know how to love
we are thighs without gaps
faces both maturity slim and little girl round

We have been wrestling with these bodies
treating them more like battle grounds than temples
more temporary homes than lighthouses
we have pinched, pulled, and tugged
allowed shattered mirrors and hate words to blind our perceptions

This is no way to reclaim our worthy
this is no way to tread in our purpose
so my darling, let’s make a pact,
right here and now
that we would love
these curves, thighs, and every handle
that we would tuck
grace filled declarations
into every part of these bodies
delicately claiming
confidently proclaiming,

THIS BODY IS MINE
This body is beautiful

This body is mine, this body is beautiful- Arielle Estoria
