Here’s to my body
That keeps the sun’s overpowering rays at bay
And tries to stay warm despite
the coldest of days.
The body that puts forth effort to keep me dry
Through the brutal storms.
Here’s to my body
That let’s me eat whatever junk food I can find
Even though I’ll regret it
During my worst days.
The body that tries greatly to stay vigorous
When I could care less.
Here’s to my body
That makes sure I have enough fat on my stomach
To keep me healthy even
When I don’t want it.
The body that matures with years to prepare me
For all that’s in store.
Here’s to my body
That is extremely far from being perfect for
What society sees as
The most beautiful.
But this body is the body ideal for me
To love and adore.
