Today I asked my body what she needed.

Today I asked my body what she needed.
Which is a big deal
Considering my joumey 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?
