my soul

dwells within

a sacred space

a temple

a place of worship

i am the grateful caretaker for

this beautiful palace

i am responsible for

how i behave

how i feel

how i look

i stand unabashed

don't shame me

don't tell me how i should be

don't make choices for me

my body is mine

Authors note: this is an inverse poem. Read both ways, top to bottom, then bottom to top.
