No body like you

It hasn’t always been easy
Between you and I
At times, I have loathed you
Dissatisfied with your looks
Too short
Too small breasts
Too fat thighs
Curls when what I wanted
was straight hair
As I grow older however
I have learned to take better care of you
To know what makes you stronger
What helps you thrive
So I make better choices for you
Because you have carried me all my life
And I am over and over amazed
By what you are capable of
Your resilience
Your ability to adapt
To heal
I am sorry for all the times
I stood in front of the mirror
With a critical eye
