These Are My legs

The human body is pretty stinkin' amazing, but often under-acknowledged and appreciated. In the spirit of body appreciation, I have written a silly and grateful poem to my legs.



These Are My Legs

They carry me to places I’ve never seen before

They help get my tushy out the door.


A bit short, but strong

They hustle me along.


They hold me up,

No matter what.


Lunging, squatting, dropping like it’s hot

 I have sometimes wished they were something that they’re not.


But they’re full of muscle and sometimes grace,

They have never let me drop out of a race.


Legs that climb and adventure

Even on unsteady grounds they feel sure.


They dance, they twirl

Just perfect for this girl.


Thank you, legs.
