"Wrapping Paper" (poem) 2011

by

There is beauty to be had


My marks, my color, my size, my shape


My texture, my tone, my movement, my adornment


All this is subject to different judgement


My skills, my strength, my weaknesses, my physical abilities


All subject to my packaging


My body.


I am a person.


I have a body.


A body is not a person.


A person is not a body.


There is beauty to be had


My love, my passion, my motivation, my dreams


My fears, my thoughts, my inhibitions, my judgement 


All this cannot be outwardly defined


My pain, my joy, my pride, my shame


My anger, my intentions, my remorse, my sympathy


All subject to my substance


My self.


I am a person.


I have a self.


 My self is yet a person.


That person is myself.
