Reflection

Once upon a time
I was like you
Ignorant
Of everything important
Thrown off guard
By any ripple
Rocked
By the gentlest of winds

Frightened
When exposed to a soul
Too much trepidation
To even test the water
Preferring
To be blind
Seeing a body in the mirror

Now though
In front of a mirror
Memories trickle
Varying colors paint
Dreams weave across
The revealed image

No longer
Can I see a person
And not feel their pain
Their suffering
And pray that one day
A smile
Will replace a frown
That laughter
Will come quicker
Than tears

I challenge you
To look into a mirror
Peer deep
And I promise
You'll find a little of em
In your reflection
Just as I
Find a little of you
In mine

I wish though
When you see your reflection
Nothing
Would be shrouded in darkness
But we're humans
Not meant
To ever live
Happily ever after
