Oh How the mighty has fallen, she sighs
Cuttiing ties, She was finding herself.
Fumbling and Falling
For all the quirks and imperfections that she hid among a shelf
Behind the things that people would find more flattering
Staring into the mirror,
needing a stop to all the sick patterns and
searching the tired yet curious eyes that stared back.
There was no intimidation by the reflection. She didnt look mad.
The confidence in her eyes and glow around her crown.
There was an ache towards her stern smile that didnt match my frown.
Who was this woman looking back?
And how can her magic be felt?
I envied her.
Untouched and Unbothered by the world or the streak stained mirror..
She… She is a queen
I was but only the reflection enticed by the fire in her eyes.
There was no plan to escape. This would be a pleasant demise
She is a safe place
Im driven to become more than just a shimmer of that face.
A place that felt safe was found in she
This Poem was pressed upon me during one of my quiet moments at a lake. I considered all the things people have said to me, the compliments, of what they see. I learned, that I avoided mirrors because then I would see what everyone else sees. This awakens such a inner conflict. I seen her smile, her eyes, her look, her confidence in herself and shes aflamed with passions. Shes lived and she has such a story to tell.. It was overwhelming.
I did not FEEL much of this though; What I did feel was covered with heavy doubts and feelings of inadequacy… but she… she was the embodiment of everything.
Maybe that’s too much, My point and conclusion is, I want to aim to become the best version of me, who I was created to be… My feelings are irrelevant in this… feelings can be indication of some imbalances within, but COMPLETELY IRRELEVANT to the truth. God knew what He was doing and why He was doing it. He also knows what happened and why He allowed it. I needed ALL THAT to ignite my fire. He has such a plan for me. Though I had a slightly different picture, God already knows how this plays out. *Relieving breath* He established the steps and way to get me there. I’m getting there. It’s starting with me. Let’s get the inside to match the outside. Let’s become that reflection. Let’s break patterns. Lets prepare for the good things that is coming our way. It’s all working for our good. You wanna chew on that alittle? Nothing is meaningless.
Finishing my thoughts, It’s not arrogant or conceited to appreciate what God has created, and YOU are His favorite creation. So the next time you see yourself in the mirror, can you throw out a compliment to your reflection because you’ve been working really hard and you deserve some praise.
LOVE YOURSELF LIKE JESUS LOVES YOU…
