Mirror, mirror 

Mirror, mirrror, I beg of you

Show me the girl that I once knew

The girl with the silky hair and porcelain skin

I’m so confused, where do I begin?

I knew she was here, not too long ago

Please mirror, mirror, I need to know

What happened to that young, beautiful girl that I once saw?

Her rosey cheeks,chiseled down to her jaw

Her eyes glistened like precious jewels

Please mirror mirror stop being so cruel

Show me that girl, and not the one that I see

I can’t understand how this could be me?


Rewinding Life

Days drag on

yet years fly by

Changes are gradual,

but in the blink of an eye,

we become  unrecognizable

to the world, to ourselves

The plans we made,

into our minds we delve

Stepping off the original path

an unexpected life unfolds

The regrets we have,

Our broken heart holds

We dream through the day

and fret through the night

We wish to go back,

change what we can

We hope for more time,

To get back to our plan

We wither away in disbelief

no more plans, no more time, 

…. just grief
