“the body is a boat” by Julia at Lindsay’s house

Carries me across this life
Keeps my heart afloat
Rocks me gently
Glides over currents
Holds my home
Settles my bones in the stillness
My body
My body
This body is a boat
This boat is my body
Carries me across this life
Protecting my insides
From all of this world’s outsides
Carries me
Transports me through choppy waters
Delivers me to shore when I am lost
If I listen closely
If I close my eyes and listen
