Love is All

(That Strong One)

 

Into the mirror she stares looking to find her beauty. It boldly

Stares right back at her yet she has this tendency to not

Really want to see it. Because at times it’s been

Malnourished by years of pain and insecurities.

Then she remembers her worth and bounces back to

The truth, reality. She understands that all she

Can count on in her reflection is the image of that realistic

Beauty. The beauty that has its cuts as deep as yours,

Yet unique enough to be identified as just hers.

If only to be true, feeling some days as though

Through someone else her life has left, but again

Remembering who she is and choosing not to compromise herself

-a simple statement that speaks strength back within itself.
