52. Being Me

I look in the mirror and what do I see

A woman who’s cared for and it’s all about me

The steps I’ve taken reclaiming my life

Listening inside; becoming my own best wife.

I like how I look happy and brown

Can go anywhere, strut around town

Enjoy every moment and all that I do

Enjoy who I’m with; can be all about you.

I see my long hair; someday will be gone

It’s been many a year since I had it this long.

When I look in the mirror I see only myself

I used to see pain above all else

Sometimes I have a far away look

A deep inner darkness that’s been overlooked

They’re fewer now and mostly I see

My smile saying I’m happy I’m free.
