Teach Me

What is it about

My body

That you need to

Teach me?

What is it about

My body

That makes you so full of

Advice

When you see it?

What is it about

My body

That needs work

While exempting yours

From criticism?

Why am I unable

To mention exercise

Without hearing a sigh

Of disbelief?

I think it’s the same

Feeling

I have inside

When I hear these things

This unbearable ache

Irresistible craving

For violence

For harm

For hurting others

The thing

In them

That makes them

Teach me about myself

Is the same thing that

Makes me

Want to

Teach them.
