I Stand Here Naked

I stand here naked
Looking in the mirror
Sad because
My body is not what it used to be
It was once so tough
A dancer’s body both soft and strong
Now it has been weakened
It is not the body I know
Legs that won’t hold me up
Shape I wish I did not see
But it has survived
I am still alive
And one day
I pray
It will be
My art again

I Stand Here Naked
