When I look in the mirror, I see…

A road well-traveled in the lines and the creases…
A woman who’s often left picking up pieces…
A mother, a lover, a boss, and a fighter…
Eyes that could shine just a little bit brighter…
A world that keeps moving completely too fast…
The do’s and the don’ts of the days that have passed…
The knowledge and wisdom of 38 years…
A triumph, a heart break, and traces of tears…
A marathon runner in life’s little races…
A freckle or two in the strangest of places…
The woman that’s always been free to be me…
And some eyebrows in need of some TLC…
