Loving my body for what it has given me and not what it looks like.

You Made Me a Mother

by Breanna Lowman

I wonder, as I look in the mirror

Who's that old woman looking back at me?

Stretch marks

Stretch marks Saggy skin

Stretch marks Saggy skin Floppy boobs

Stretch marks Saggy skin Floppy boobs Stomach rolls

Hair falling out

Hair falling out Knees getting worse

Hair falling out Knees getting worse I so easily forget

Hair falling out Knees getting worse I so easily forget My current state is not a curse

I'm compelled to say

I'm compelled to say Thank you, Body,

I'm compelled to say Thank you, Body, For all your strength and wonder

I'm compelled to say Thank you, Body, For all your strength and wonder For you made me a mother

My story is etched in your skin

And you held my greatest gifts within

Stomach stretched

Stomach stretched Beyond belief

Stomach stretched Beyond belief Defying space

Stomach stretched Beyond belief Defying space Love grew deep

Power and strength

Power and strength Brought forth creation

Power and strength Brought forth creation Pushing through pain

Power and strength Brought forth creation Pushing through pain A baby's cry, pure elation

Nourishing new life

Nourishing new life With breasts full

Nourishing new life With breasts full Consistent and faithful

Nourishing new life With breasts full Consistent and faithful To always supply more

Crying babies rocked to sleep late at night

Crying babies rocked to sleep late at night Small heads sleeping upon heart beats

Crying babies rocked to sleep late at night Small heads sleeping upon heart beats Shoulders aching, backs quaking

Crying babies rocked to sleep late at night Small heads sleeping upon heart beats Shoulders aching, backs quaking Even so, kept on loving

Today, I'm compelled to say

Thank you, Body,

For all your strength and wonder

For you made me a mother
