I am more than this body

contemplation (1)

I am more than this body
this skin and folded flesh

I am more than these arms
that have pulled and pushed
that have consoled and loved
lifted and reached

I am more than these toes
that have stood and waivered
that have tripped and slid
turned and walked

I am more than these eyes
that have watched and cried
that have seen and wondered
closed and slept

I am more than this body
this skin and folded flesh
I am more than these hands
that have held death and life
dirt and wind

I am more
