Homage to my Stretch Marks

these stretch marks are

sinuous;

they dance around my legs,

stepping from side

to side.

 

these stretch marks are

the rivers of my body;

they stream

up and down and

all around my curves.

 

these stretch marks are

the fingerprints of my legs;

they are inimitable,

molded

just for me.

 

these stretch marks are

the proof that I have lived;

they remind me

that I learned to love

what I was taught to hate.

 

these stretch marks are

uninvited wedding crashers;

they have grown on me

in more ways than one

and they keep me company

when nobody else will.

 

these stretch marks are me

and I am them –

we are one and the same.
