untitled


I look in the mirror
and what do I see?
Who is this girl
staring back at me?

I used to know who I was,
who I wanted to be.
I used to know who I loved,
and who loved me.

I longed for an escape
from this comfortable existence,
I longed for the boldness
to fuel within me, a resistance.

So I embarked on a voyage,
and I made myself a vow
To come back a changed person,
but now….

I long for the ocean,
dark, blue, and deep.
I long for its motion
that rocks me to sleep.

I long for a sunrise,
filling the morning with light.
I long for a sunset,
giving way to the night.

I long for a blanket of stars
embroidered with night.
I long for a tunnel of dark
the moon my only light.

I long for clear skies
of unblemished blue.
I long for white clouds,
a heavenly clue.

I long for an adventure
that spans the whole world,
I long for excitement
as before us it’s unfurled.

I long for the horizon,
always in sight.
I long for that constant,
amidst all wrongs a “right”.

I long to stop judging,
stop doubting, stop hating.
I long to stop longing,
stop wishing, stop waiting.

I returned from my voyage,
with a whole new perspective.
I don’t believe I was ever,
so sentimental and reflective.

So I look in the mirror
and what do I see?
Who is this girl
staring back at me?

I know who I am,
and who I want to be.
I know what I want,
but I just wish you could see…the real me.
