Maxine Smith


My body is a temple

Scarred and pleasantly plump

A haven worth respecting

Imperfections through head to toe


My heart is an Island

Yearning for a visit

A wistful sanctuary

My retreat of indulgence


My spirit is a river

Venturing through time

Inseparable from the journey of dreams

As entwining the promise land


My souis my guide

Growth from Inside and out

mentor through the storms

Shelter till the sun returns


Leading the path of my future
