    As I look into the mirror, I am scared of what I see,
    Tear filled eyes return my stare and I can feel their plea.
    The person I’ve been hiding for so many, many years
    Is looking back at me, and I can see how much she fears
    That I will lock her up somewhere so no one else will know
    How she’s become so big a part of me-I just can’t show.
    The world is not so kind to those it does not understand-
    Who do not fit their images of woman or of man.

    For some it’s all so clear- their body doesn’t match their mind,
    They know their only choices are to die or else to find
    A way to change their body and to free their inner soul.
    So finally they’ll have the chance to be complete and whole.

    For me, though, it is not so clear-my thoughts seem all akimbo-
    I’ve lived my life not here nor there –instead I am in limbo.
    Not certain yet just who I am, I float from day to day-
    Grasping for signs of where my future lies but who can say,
    Though doubts and fears abound, I trust that SOMEWHERE there’s a plan-
    A reason for the way I feel –I just don’t understand.
    And though I’m so much older now and both my kids are grown
    And many times I feel my destiny’s to be alone-
    I somehow still hold out some hope that one day I may find
    One who will know the inner me and keep an open mind.
    Would they be male or female? I’m not sure that it would matter-
    For living life alone seems worse and certainly much sadder.

    So guess I’ll close this out-I thank you all for your kind ears-
    Your friendship is so precious that it oft renews my tears.
    And to that frightened girl who from the silver mirror peers-
    “We’re one-and never will we part-we’re in our golden years!”

      Another beautifully penned work of art lass. Well done, my eyes swelled with tears as I read this. Feel like the proverbial scgoolgurl….just a wee bit older.

      Lovely words.  <3

      Cynthia. Be not sad that you are alone. For you are in your heart and mind. Even though you wander the wilderness, you gather strength of heart and mind….Maybe this is your destiny as it is mine. Like Moses we wander and receive strength and knowledge from the universe. The journey will end and you shall both be together again. We all will be rewarded with wisdom, strength and kindred spirits. We are all here for you.

        Thanks for your reply Persephone (and Giselle for yours). I know you write here in the poetry forum too-it’s nice to know that at least a FEW people actually read them! Though of course much of poetry is written for the author themselves to reflect on their thoughts and emotions.

      I love this poem Cyn. Deliciously introspective. The mirror is such an expressive figure. In this piece I appreciate the fusion between body and soul. It shows an admirable peace of mind.

      Curiously I am about to post a poem in which I just mention the reflection in the mirror and I have found in these verses a deepening in the subject.
