Treat It As Such


My body is a temple and I treat it as such
The outside may be scarred and painted
With the stains of former heartbreak
But my body is still a temple
I may tremble and bow during storms, flood the lands with tears
I may keep the lights on all night to write words on my walls
But my body is still a temple
I may have trusted too many people
To peek through my windows to see my soul
I may have let too many enter, even given them a key
But my body is still a temple
My body is a temple and it does not owe you anything
You mended a broken window
But do not expect entrance to my temple as payment
My body is a temple
I am where you come to worship on your hands and knees,
With a heavy heart and burdened shoulders
My body is a temple, so do not trespass
Do not enter unless I ask you to do so
Do not trample on my flowers or cut down my trees
Do not throw rocks through my windows or kick down my doors
Do not force yourself into me
And steal all that has ever been of value to me
My body is a temple
My body is a temple
And it is my only temple
So please, I beg of you,
Treat it as such
