A Tribute to Your Changing Body

How has your body done it?All these years carrying you carrying your weight carrying your burdens shouldering your aches and pains bearing the brunt of your choices actions, decisions and indecisions.

Shiny, abundant hair combed, coiffed, tweezed, shaved, and blown, till it starts to become mousy grey, thin, recede, till it starts look wise only then you look wise.

Smooth, dewy, fresh skin cleansed, exfoliated, and masqued, till it starts to become lined, marked, sagged, tagged, till it starts to show evidence of years on earth with its joys, sorrows, loves and struggles till it starts to look experienced only then you look experienced.

Smooth, toned, tight muscles exercised, stretched, strutted, lusted, till they start to become soft, weak, pudgy till they start to call your attention to your physical and mental strength only then you look resilient.

Straight, dense, strong bones + joints walked, jumped, moved, ambulated, till they start to become compressed, porous, arthritic till they start to feel full of steps lived only then you look full of steps lived.

Sharp, clear, open ears listened, heard, and processed, till they start to become muffled, impaired, even deafened, till they start to listen for what’s important only then you listen for what’s important.

Stable, easy, tiny weight grown, dieted, heavied, and leaned, till it starts to become uncertain, fidgety, sensitive till it starts to connect to your wholeness only then you connect to your wholeness.
