My body is a traffic light
Missing amber in sequence
Green means yes
Red means no
Nothing like somewhere in-between
It does not come with a filter.
My body does not sleep
It is constantly aware.
My body is allergic to hurtful words
It shrinks at the sound of them
It is not rubber
It cannot bend without breaking
It is sunshine
It is moonlight.
My body self-ignites when wounded
It burns from the inside out
It does not easily heal
It’s wounds cannot be bandaged
By perfume, chocolate and flowers
My body is not a leaf in the wind
It is the anchor of troubled ship at sea.
My body is life
It is wisdom
It is wealth
It is love.
It is magic.
