Decolonize My Body

Thu, 01/25/2018 - 11:56 -- Cigghhh

Decolonize my bodyI used my body to make you stay,Enticed you to do things my body wasn’t ready forThings that made me not appreciate my body,You opened me and made room for yourself,Spilling all of meYou colonized a body, you called it yours not realizing it was not yours to praise,Now you are gone, and I have wounds all over,I try to take back my body,I’m reclaiming my bodyI apologize every morning to my bodyHoping it will forgive me for all the pain I caused,trying to erase your touchTrying to show my body more loveBut my body ignores me now,I wait for the day it’ll respond back
