38 (Repost August 2016)

I am not afraid
To turn
38
For my happiness
Will not be hindered
By a single
Number
Instead I have learned
To embrace
Every curve
Every wrinkle
Every gray hair
As a badge of victory
For I storm against each day
Dragging in new treasures and songs
And leave the self-conscious
Floundering in the water
Age has taught me
To be my own life preserver
So am I afraid
To turn
38
No
It is just another badge
Another achievement
To hang up on my wall
And admire each day
