I push my arms against the weight of my future as the weight of my past pushes me
I squat to preserve, enhance, and improve the alabaster desire that are my thighs
I run against the pavement, each crack a person who deconstructed and denied me.
I crunch against time to give definition to the hips you’ll soon hold on to.
I desire not to fit the puzzle pieces of the paper dolls
or the people that so desperately let paper define them.
I do this
Soulful body and mind
