I Am Not Old by Samantha Reynolds   (see more of her poems on bentlily.com)
I am not old…she said.
I am rare.
I am the standing ovation
at the end of the day.
I am the retrospective
of my life as art.
I am the hours
connected like dots
into good sense.
I am the fullness
of existing.
You think I am waiting to die…
but I am waiting to be found.
I am a treasure.
I am a map.
And these wrinkles are
imprints of my journey.
Ask me anything.
