Vulnerability is not weakness

My daughter comes out of the ocean
blood running pale and pink
from the barnacle cuts in her feet

she calls them
barnakisses
and doesn’t seem to mind

but I am startled yet again
by how we are packaged
in skin as thin as cling wrap

and I come to the same conclusion
that it’s meant to teach us
that vulnerability
is not our weakness,
it’s our purpose.
