Loving Them All

I am no taller
Than I was
And yet my hair
Has grown a millimeter
Or two,
So have my nails.

I am no taller
Than I was
Last month,
And yet a single
White hair grows
Not too far from
My right temple.

Not one inch
Has been added
To my height
Since I was 13
And yet I've grown
Around the waist,
Around the hips,
Around 30.

Each day,
A new curve develops,
A new white hair appears,
And each day,
I learn to love them all.
