Body in the Mirror

By Justine C. Tajonera

What does my skin
tell me other than
how much time
has passed?

the shape of my
belly, the scar
on my groin,
the calluses on
the soles of
my feeet

tell a story about
that I could
never put
into words.

There are things
that I might hide
but nothing could be
more plain than:
my happiness worn
on my bones,
my beauty,
the glowing lamp
my skin.
