Words from my reflection.

Do you see me the way I see you?

The grey hair, each strand one of wisdom gained through a life well lived.

The darks circles, shadows cast from the light of your eyes.

The stretch marks, evidence of the miracles you are capable of.

Do you hear my affirmations?

You are enough.

You are so loved.

You are triumphant.

You are strong.

You have everything you need right there inside of you.

Are you okay when you go away?

When you leave me I hope you take with you

The way I see you and believe it too.

When you walk away I hope you find strength

From the things I had to say.
