Smorgasbord Posts from Your Archives – #Potluck #Mothers This Body Has Carried Babies by Lee

This is the third post from the archives of Lee who writes for her blog Woeful to Froful, where she shares about hair and skincare, beauty, positive thinking and music. This is from Lee’s second blog and I thought it was a lovely way to express a mother’s body….

Mothers This Body Has Carried Babies by Lee

I should stand proudly and without fear, my hands caressing my bulging belly
Because I carried babies in here

I should not shy away from the power I possess, what my body can and has done
Because I carried babies in here

Although they have left lines, scars and torn away a more acceptable exterior, I’m okay
Because I carried babies in here

I’ve been left saggy and bigger and heavier and less confident
Because I carried babies in here

I should feel no shame in the state that I have been left in
Because I carried babies in here

I will not feel forced to snap back and be who I used to be
Because I carried babies in here

I will remember there is beauty in this bulk
Because I carried babies in here

I will not insult myself by not loving myself
Because I carried babies in here

I will not let images of perfection erase the wonderful thing I did
Because I carried babies in here

I had life grow inside me on several occasions, bringing forth other human beings
And I carried babies in here

I was lucky enough to be granted permission by the universe to create life
And then I carried babies in here

This thing, only a womb can do, I’ve accomplished that
And I carried babies in here

I am strong, I am proud, I am a mother, this is my body
I carried babies in here

I carried babies in here
I carried babies in here
I carried babies in here
