This Is My Body...

And it is meant for me.

This is my body.

I am not sorry.

This is my temple,

not your latest example.

This is my home,

you shall not enter.

This is my property,

this is my center.

This is my life,

This is my brain,

These are my hands, my breasts,

and my very own pain.

You did not knock,

or ask for the key.

I am on lock,

and certainly not 

to be set free.

To be quite honest,

I can barley breathe.

This is my body,

and it was meant for me.
