A love letter to my body
You’ve carried me across black sand beaches and timeworn glaciers. You are strong and yet delicate. You cast a shadow that cannot be ignored. You’ve held the weight of all the emotions I couldn’t bear to feel. You grow and shrink as you need to. You unapologetically bear scars and stretch marks and cellulite. Your eyes are sunflowers. You are speckled and freckled. You withheld breath until I learned to rest.
