My body is the jacket cover to my continuously evolving book,
a tale of of pain and pleasure, a story seeming typical at first look.
A few deep marks represent the gift of motherhood and the creation of life,
yet others are stark reminders of disease and the cuts of the surgeons knife.
The cover is somewhat tattered and the pages slight bent,
but the chapters within are filled with stories of love, bravery, honesty, and pure intent.
