who am I in this skin

Who  am I in this skin

as I sit and ponder 

with my hand in my chin.


How did I get this way

I am lot different from my pass

well I sure do like it

I hope it just last.


When did I change 

from a young scared girl

who was in insecure 

now my life pass all seems a blur


Who am I 

as  look in the mirror

now I tell people what I think?

I have learn to say no

if people don't under stand me

I am thinking so!


Look at me

the difference you must see

I a stronger women

now that I am 60 years old

I am healthy and still make a man eyes turn

I am told. lol


Who am I in this skin

I am still surprised as I

wipe a tear from my eye,

I am now a widower now and it scary 

I can not lie.


For me, I feel my life in God hands

God knew once I was alone

my skin would change and

I would become  tuff and strong

and I would gain self confidence

while trying not to do any wrong.

Who am I in this skin

my life only just to begin

if this is true for you too

life can be grand

no matter what we have

been through.
