Be Proud of Your Body

That’s what people say. 

No matter how you look, or what size you are

And I am,

I am proud of my body

Not because of what it looks like,

But because of what it does.

Walk, run, fight, dance

And do more things

Than anyone who’s ever looked at me up and down

And seen just that, a body

Can ever imagine.

Sometimes not gracefully, or even perfectly

But only in the way

That I, in this body,


I’m proud of my body

And I’m not who I am because of it

In fact,

It’s the way it is

Because of who I am
