Self Image


Gazing into the glass of time
she stares blindly past her
solitude life with a smile.

For an instant, she sees a 
lovely creature, with beauty 
all her own, her image delights
her in ways only she knows.

How can one look like an
angel, feeling so alone she
thought, not knowing she
was never alone, she had
happiness deep within herself
a mirror has to sides she thought
with a sigh.

Life has been a hard long
road, it has dealt her many
a losing hand, yet she carries
on her life being happy she
has been so blessed.

Her life now satisfies her, even
though many tears have been
shed, it has made her strong
to pick up each broken
piece, continuing walking
the road of destiny. 

She's gotten use of living life
in solitude, second nature
to her now, she has found a
peace of mind, accepting ways
life has taught her, is a very
special way.

She knows life is never the way
she wanted it to be, it is the way
it was meant to be, and all should
accept each day for the goodness
not the bleakness, she always kept
this thought in her mind.
