I Am

by Mama Mickey

I知 not the skin but the tone in the color of it
I知 not the lips but the kissable thickness of them
I知 not the hair but the curl that sets the course-ness of it
I知 not the walk but the confidence in the stride of it
I知 not the heart but the muscle in the strength of it
I知 not the wide hips but the bones that痴 built in them
I知 not the talk but the voice that I live with
I'm not the full breasts but the milk that has nurtured many a kingdom with them
I知 not Africa but the mystery that dwells in it
I知 not who you think
