The mirror cracked

She stared into the face

of the stranger

Vulnerable

Innocent

Walking calmly towards life

Sometimes

Hand in hand towards danger ?

.

Did she race through life

Causing mayhem

Creating strife

.

What

encounters shaped her

took her breath away

made her heart beat faster

pangs of loneliness did stir

.

She knew that face

The face of that girl

Smooth skinned

Untouched by life

She reached to take her hand

They both rescind

.

Why?

.

She gazed at the now women

Who stood in front of her

Many years have past

Oh how lovely

oh how young they were

.

She was staring in to the mirror

Self reflection

Casting her invisible pebble

Cracking the glass Into a thousand pieces

Each shard saw past any imperfection

.

Laying bare the truthfulness

The layers life had given her

Wisdom

Grace

Thoughtfulness

Trust

Kindness

Knowledge

.

Mindful in her realization

She was still truly dazzling

.

Staying true to her present

Staying loyal to her future

The past were her lessons

Her errors

Her memories

.

No longer living there

She is present in the zone

Where her heart

& her soul,

She does bare
