Today I Asked My Body What She Needed

Today I asked my body what she needed, Which is a big deal Considering my journey of Not Really Asking That Much. I thought she might need more water. Or protein. Or greens. Or yoga. Or supplements. Or movement. But as I stood in the shower Reflecting on her stretch marks, Her roundness where I would like flatness, Her softness where I would like firmness. All those conditioned wishes That form a bundle of Never-Quite-Right-Ness, She whispered. very gently: Could you just love me like this?
