The Same, But Different (a poem by Gabriela López de Dennis)

I am that same woman,
Only older.


I am that same woman,
Only wiser.


I am that same woman,
Only tired.


I am that same woman,
Only thicker.


I am that same woman,
Only no longer make-up-less.


I am that same woman,
Only grayer.


I am that same woman,
Only slouched.


I am that same woman,
Only slower.


I am that same woman,
Only seasoned.


I am that same woman,
Only schooled.


I am that same woman,
Only dreaming bigger.


I am that same woman,
Only louder.


I am that same woman,
Only laughing harder.


I am that same woman,
Only growing more, every day.
