Milestones [day seven] {NAPOWRIMO}

You are who you are
It cannot be denied
Wrinkled, spotted
Crows feet near the eye

Pink lightning stripes
Upon your legs
Skin that stretched
As gravity sagged

A rearrangement of parts
Little here, too much there
Scars of wounds or surgeries
Speckles in your hair

Road well walked
And you ran at times
Fell and got run over
Face into the grime

Through youth’s storms you came
Mightily on the waves
Sailing for the middle
Of wisdom’s nesting caves

Where pondering and thinking
Control the atmosphere
Memories and lessons blinking
Stacking up the years
