Thank you body Thank you for brown copper skin that shines like a new penny. Thank you legs for running miles with me and chasing dreams.
Thank you hips for salsa dancing and putting up with skinny jeans. Thank you lungs for songs and exhales of namaste. Thank you shoulders for carrying burdens and being the place where people can go to cry.
Thank you hands for working and holding traumas, that were not yours to hold. Thank you eyes for showing me the beauty of sunsets.
Thank you mouth for speaking truth, for the sweet taste of empanadas, and for gentle kisses.
I'm sorry body, for all the times I pushed you past your limit. I'm sorry for working you into the ground and sleepless nights of worry.
I'm sorry for all the times I would have traded you for another body and otherwise disrespected you. I'm sorry for the times others disrespected you and failed to see that you are sacred ground, a beautiful vessel.
Thank you body for even in those moments where I was ungrateful for you, you are the home of my soul.
