my body (2019)

Excerpt: Last night I realized my body is beautiful. This morning I forgot. My body is a summer body every season. everyday my father reminds me that he hates my body. I can feel my body absorbing the sadness. THE COLD IS IN MY BODY. Just ate cheese. Waiting for my body to punish me. It wasn’t worth it. Sometimes I think about my past and my body fills with guilt and shame. Today I sat & looked at my body (naked) and I never do that and for a long time I couldn’t. Trying to connect with my body. Always felt like a separate entity.

This is a collection of written thoughts about my body from 2017-2019.
