I’m Sorry Body …

A poem to my Body 

I’m sorry I didn’t listen,
when you called out to me.
I’m sorry I ignored you,
when you begged please feed me.

I’m sorry I closed my eyes
to the signs you needed care,
like the loss of my curly locks,
Oh I had such lovely hair!

I’m sorry I didn’t listen,
when it was obvious you were in pain.
I pushed you up the hill again,
through the sleet, snow and rain.

I’m sorry I ignored the fact,
that you needed fuel.
I kept you running on empty
as I couldn’t break a rule.

I’m sorry I closed my eyes,
to all the things you do.
You keep my heart beating,
despite how I’ve treated you.

I’m sorry I ignored the fact,
that together we are one.
That I am you and you are me,
even at times when it’s not fun!

I’m sorry I didn’t love you.
I’m sorry I hated you so.
I’m sorry that I blamed you.
I’m sorry I didn’t let go.

I’m grateful for my body
and all that it can do.
I want to get over this,
I really want to pull through.

I understand that this is my body,
I understand it’s my only one.
I understand what I now owe my body, what I owe myself…..
A great big slice of Freedom.
