Dear Body,

You are the boldest, bravest,

wisest body that can exist

inside of me.


You work so hard to bring me

wellness and do so involun-

tarily. You deserve good

things. You deserve what-

ever it takes to keep you at

your best. Thank you for allow-

ing us to start over every

day, and multiple times

within the same day.


Please do not give up on me

or refuse me patience in

your mercy. I wish I could

say that I will love you

right now, but that could

be an unfair statement

given that love requires

so much more, and yet

the full merits of imperfection.
