I’m sorry for hiding you
When I saw your stretch marks
How could I be so ashamed
Of something
That meant I was growing

I’m sorry for depriving you
Because of a number on a scale
A number that could never
Measure my worth

I’m sorry for hating you
While you made sure
My heart kept beating
And my lungs kept breathing
And my legs kept bringing me
To where I was meant to be

I’m sorry for tearing you down
As if you were a vacant building
That my soul didn’t live in
I didn’t realize
That you were my home
