    • I know I am because I said am
      I know I am because I said am
      I know I am because I said am
      My body is home
      My body is home
      I know I am because I said am
      I know I am because I said am
      I know I am because I said am

      So try this
      Take your hands over your bumpy lovebody naked
      And remember the first time you touched someone
      With the sole purpose of learning all of them
      Touched them because the light was pretty on them
      And the dust in the sunlight danced the way your heart did
      Touch yourself with a purpose
      Your body is the most beautiful royal
      Fathers and uncles are not claiming your knife anymore
      Are not your razor, no
      Put the sharpness back
      Lay your hands flat and feel the surface of scarred skin

      I once touched a tree with charred limbs
      The stump was still breathing
      But the tops were just ashy remains
      I wonder what it's like to come back from that
      Sometimes I feel a forest fire erupting from my wrists
      And the smoke signals sent out are the most beautiful things
      I've ever seen
      Love your body the way your mother loved your baby feet
      And brother, arm wrapping shoulders, and remember
      This is important
      You are worth more than who you fuck
      You are worth more than a waistline
      You are worth more than any naked body could proclaim
      In the shadows, more than a man's whim
      Or your father's mistake
      You are no less valuable as a size 16, than a size 4
      You are no less valuable as a 32a than a 36c
      Your sexiness is defined by concentric circles within your wood
      You are a goddamn tree stump with leaves sprouting out

      By Draco Malfoy
      Know girls who are trying to fit into the social norm
      Like squeezing into last year's prom dress
      I know girls who are low rise, mac eyeshadow, and binge drinking
      I know girls that wonder if they're disaster and sexy enough to fit in
      I know girls who are fleeing bombs from the mosques of their skin
      Playing russian roulette with death; it's never easy to accept
      That our bodies are fallible and flawed
      But when do we draw the line?
      When the knife hits the skin?
      Isn't it the same thing as purging
      Because we're so obsessed with death
      Some women just have more guts than others
      The funny thing is women like us don't shoot
      We swallow pills, still wanting to be beautiful at the morgue
      Still proceeding to put on make-up
      Still hoping that the mortician finds us fuckable and attractive
      We might as well be buried with our shoes
      And handbags and scarves, girls
      We flirt with death everytime we etch a new tally mark
      Into our skin
      I know how to split my wrists like a battlefield too
      But the time has come for us to
      Reclaim our bodies
      Our bodies deserve more than to be war-torn and collateral
      Offering this fuckdom as a pathetic means to say
      "I only know how to exist when I'm wanted"
      Girls like us are hardly ever wanted you know
      We're used up and sad and drunk and
      Perpetually waiting by the phone for someone to pick up
      And tell us that we did good
      You did good
      I know I am because I said am
      I know I am because I said am
      I know I am because I said am
      My body is home
      My body is home
      I know I am because I said am
      I know I am because I said am
      I know I am because I said am
