My body was a book

My body was a book 

my body was a book that my mother read to me every night 

my body is a book that I didn’t want to read 

because who wants to read a book about a girl who is 

3’11 

disabled 

not skinny 

my body is a book I wanted to finish

my body is a book that has given me paper cuts 

my body is a book that I have folded its pages 

my body is a book that is a best seller 

my body is a book with a lovable character 

my body is a book that is better than Harry Potter.
