At the beginning of 2022, I had the urge to write poetry.
Something I had only dabbled with in high school.
This is the first poem I wrote as an adult as I had given up writing when I was a teenager because I didn’t believe in myself.
It’s a little fun and silly yet it honours the trillions of cells in my body for their hard work every day to keep me functioning and feeling great.
I thank them for that 😍
Give yours a big thank you, too.
There is no love outside of you greater than the love inside of you.
Listen. Learn. Love.
The cells of my shape bring me a love ever deep
The deepness within is so full of mystique
Day by day your love grows strong, evermore
To know all you do, I will never be sure
In each tiny one love abounds in full flight
Your love for me rises up with so much delight
I can never express, how I feel deep inside
For you show me love. It reaches far, it reaches wide
Forever I am grateful you love me so dear
As I give back to you what is abundantly clear
We are one, we are many in this body of love
A love for this body that will always rise above
