Book Review- Heart Talk

I am enthralled by short stories and poetry from writers such as R.H. Sin, Rupi Kaur, and Michael Faudet. I recently just read, Cleo Wade's "Heart Talk" and sincerely feel like it needs to be a reading requirement for anyone who has gone through some hard shit and needs a reminder of how powerful they are. 

a love note to my body

a love note to my body:

first of all,

I want to say

thank you.

for the heart you kept beating

even when it was broken

for every answer you gave me in my gut

for loving me back

even when I didn't know how to love you

for every time you recovered when I pushed you past our limits

for today,

for waking up.
