The Reflection

March 29, 2019

The reflection in the mirror
Surprised her each new day
Less than she started as
Yet more than she once was
Not even close
To where she’d end up
But with each tiny step
With each new day
Slowly the outside slipping away
To match who she was inside
Who she was always meant to be
Too many years hidden
Not being seen for who she truly was
Standing tall and self-assured
Ready to bloom and become
The person only she knew existed
Letting the layers slip away
She was ready to share
Ready to believe
The reflection in the mirror
