Yes, I'm that person who sees the beauty in
lumpy, bumpy, scarred and aged.
I guess because in winter, I tend to resemble such things
as lumpy, bumpy, scarred and aged.
Chalky white and wrinkled.
A few age spots and deepened lines...
brittle even, in some places.
But just look at the richness of the colors.
Beautifully aged and more interesting than before-
I love this more than when it was freshly cut from the tree.
Things sprouting where they shouldn't...
but beautiful nonetheless.
I hope to embrace the coming years - and they are coming fast-
and see the new beauty in the lumpy, bumpy, scarred
and aged version of myself.
I lived it all.
The laughter, the pain, the good, the bad and the ugly.
Yes, they are all accounted for.
I want to choose to see the beauty.
I hope you want to choose it, too.
