But You’ll Shine Again…

27 Feb

Do you see me?

I sure see you.

That “smile” on your face.

“Everything is fine,” you say.

I stare blankly at the person I don’t even recognize anymore.

Eyes once shining with innocence…

Now filled with the sheer cruelty of the world.

I force a small smile though I am sad to see you.

Placing a hand out in front of me to touch your cheek

I whisper softly, “Don’t worry…you’ll find your way again and shine brighter than before.”

You look back at me with doubt and tears in your eyes.

“Don’t be afraid…you always have me,” I whisper as you nod.

You slowly walk away from me…but you can never escape me.

I am you. I am your reflection.
