I met someone today…
Someone I’ve known forever, yet a dark stranger
She was a beautiful girl, yet wrapped herself
in a blanket of insecurity.
She was a determined girl, yet dependent on
everyone but herself.
She was an affectionate girl, yet gave love to all but
those who were deserving.
She was an eloquent girl, yet she impressed
for all the wrong reasons.
Standing in the mirror today…I stared at her…she stared at me
And all that came to mind was how very little I envied her.
Self-conscious, scared and naive was she.
A tear rolled down my rosy cheek as I gazed at this visitor…
My heart decidedly nodded we will NEVER meet again.
In the darkest of times, your past can’t help but to emerge and attempt to weaken your pillars of strength. It is in those times that you must remember stars cannot shine without darkness.
