Body Loving by Christina de Vries – POEM

When was the last time

You looked in the mirror and said 

I love this body of mine?

*

When there was nothing you’d like to change

Nothing to improve or work with

When you didn’t compare yourself to strangers?

*

Ask me. The honest answer is 

I can’t even remember 

And scary enough, I’m not alone in this

*

Thrown at us from every direction is the guide

Wanting people to become unrealistic creatures

Wanting us to show it all, but makes us hide

*

Creating a dream to become something unreal

To try to get results only photoshop can make

And when you don’t get there, what do you feel?

*

The shame of not being good enough

Some break down because of failing 

There’s only so long a person can act tough

*

I don’t love my body. I wish that wasn’t true

How perfect it would be to only see 

The miracle that makes me and you

*

Think of all this wonderful body can do 

It heals itself, loves and handle pain 

Let’s stop the shaming and say thank you

*

Thank you for letting me feel 

For taking me places and creating memories

For being something to be proud of and not conceal

*

It’s time to focus on getting better from the inside

Using time well spent by giving out a compliment

And stop judging on what is on the outside

*

Learn to see the beauty of a broken soul

To love all that makes us human 

Appreciate the mistakes that makes us whole

*

Body shaming is just another word for hate

And why should we talk down about 

The one thing keeping us grounded, unique and great?

*

It’s long overdue to turn body shaming into body loving 

To take care of it as our most important asset

Because without it, we truly are nothing 

*

You might never see perfection but love it anyway 

For all it gives you and where it takes you

Repeat after me and say:

*

I love my body!

I love my body!

I LOVE MY BODY!

*

Scream it to the world so they can all hear

Write it in the sky and at the bottom of the sea

With those four words, chase away the fear

*

Of never becoming a copy of a lie

Embrace that miracle that is you 

And kiss those body shamers goodbye

*

Life is too precious and too short for shame

Take a break. It’s time to love yourself

Besides, how stupid would we look if we were all the same?

*
