Old Woman

When I look in the mirror

I see that my age has set in

My skin appears to be a size too big

all over this body of mine

But

Along with each flap of skin

wrinkle

sag

comes the respect I have for myself

the respect I should have…

wish I had

given myself long ago

Because every thing I do

everything I am

everything I’ve accomplished

has nothing to do with my looks

and everything to do with the person I am on the inside.
