THE SKIN I'M IN

Thank you, God, for skin
Oh this skin I'm in
That furrowed brow
Those lines, every year more defined
Mmmmmm dark circles under my eyes
I'm not tired
My body's not tired
My soul is tired
Because the world tried
To make my body a cage
My body is strong, fierce as ever
These hips, these arms, those calves
Sexy as hell
Capable of anything
God's breath in my lungs
Her strength in my stride
Her spirit in my bones
I fly, I rise, I carry, I nurse, I bleed
My body
Sweet body, all wrapped up in skin
How sweet of God to give me a body
Oh this skin I'm in
How I love my body
