Poetry Sunday ~ Joni- just joni

Pr. 27:19  As water reflects a face, so a man's heart reflects the man.
***

Joni, just joni
(c) Joni Zipp

I stand beside the column
that towers over me.
I’m small as the shadow
stretches across all I used to be.

I slip in and out of pillars
as they waltz in a gallant
stride of carrying me away
to the life altering talent.

I glide where no one takes
notice of the small shell
awaiting validation
in this wandering cell.

I walk with wobbling
feet that sustains my body
as I find a place to fit in
while I’m feeling  shoddy.

I exist as a human
my skin houses the bony
part of me that becomes
the me I am, I’m joni, just joni.
