Ode To My Skin,
My Friend, My Identity, My Shield.
You have been ever present during the good times and the bad times.
You have been my face, my truth, my identity.
You have protected me from harm both seen and unseen.
When you bleed, I bleed; When you break, I break.
When you are happy, My life literally glows with glee.
Therefore, I cherish you and I will love you better everyday.
I will care for you just as you have cared for me everyday.
My dearest skin, I owe you everything.
For you have given me everything.
