The Body: A Sacred Temple

Sacred Temple

Your mind, your body, represents your Temple…

Those eyes, those lips, perfected to give the ultimate kiss.

That Temple that you carry around is sacred, is blessed, and was made from heavenly dust not stress.

That Temple came from a Divine Plan to reveal God through man/woman.

Your body is a pyramid filled with ancestral resources that are dormant in your mind.

Diabolical planning keeps you too occupied with surface grief to tap into the powers within you.

You were made beautiful… Regardless of the extra weight, lack of weight, or the opinions of others…

Your body, that body, no matter the shape, height, weight, is a Temple carved by hands that wanted to see the God in Man/Woman.

Take care of yourself, love yourself, every shape has a place in the Human Race.

Take care of your Sacred Temple because you can’t get a new one, you can only enhance and preserve this one…

There is only One You and that in itself is Special...

These words are just a reminder...

It's so wonderful that God dwells within me and you. For this reason, I do not defile my body in any way. I am careful as to what I ingest in my body as well as what I put out. Your poem is so beautiful and oh so very true. Thank you for the reminder. Voted up and beautiful.
