I Am

my eyes to see,

my nose to smell,

my elephant ears to hear,

my hands to create art,

my legs to travel,

between them to birth life,

my hips to carry,

my tongue to express,

my lips to soothe and heal,

my arms to hold.

 

this is a body.

it grows.

it changes.

 

it deserves love,

but not adulation,

and most certainly not condemnation.

 

this is a body.

i am grateful to have one.

i am grateful to experience life in its form,

but this body began,

and this body will end.

but i,

i know no beginning and no end.

because i am not a body.

i am a soul.

– g.c.
