The Looking Glass

31 Dec

Saw a vision of myself today

Took a look into the looking glass 

I saw someone who learned from her past

With the glistening gray hair, every strand representing each moment of her life

Who has raised to the top of her class

She spoke to me saying “you can make it

The drive within you no one can able to replicate it

There is a beauty that shines through you more brighter than diamonds”

The words, the language the comes out of your mouth is more than what they imagine

She said, “One self cannot ever finish finding ones self 

Everyday is a day of encounters and gaining of knowledge”

The woman in the looking glass was strong, independent, and confident

Yet loving, open, honest, bold, and determined

She said, “Never listen to narrow minded people that will surround you

They cannot comprehend the things you do

It will only be a few that will stand by you

Hold ties to your blood

They will be there during the flood 

You will see yourself trusting in ones self and God alone

For your character will be built and your children’s children will adopt your ways 

For you have released the lion from its cage 

Just for a moment 

She caressed my cheek and embraced me 

For one day I will be that woman in the looking glass
