Know Better

Think you know better

Than me

Who honors my body daily?

Who wears this skin

Who knows what my smile means?

Think you know better

Than me

Who can name every scar

Who wakes and sleeps in this

What is mine, by right of birth

Think you can say what’s best

For my being

Sure you know better

Than me, who carries on

Even after a storm

Even feather-worn

Think you know better, really?

Well think again.
