Tell your body she is holy. Tell your heart she is mighty. Praise the universe in your ribcage. Praise the trench that taught you about darkness. Praise the day you danced naked in the light. Praise the laughter that lives in your belly. Praise your bell tinkle womb, wet with smiling. Praise the bamboo your spine can become. Praise the scrap and gristle you've got. Praise your being...your becoming...just praise.
