The Beauty in the Mirror

In this reflective stare
Mind numbing thoughts
Of what is now
Of what once was.

Years gone by
With a blink of an eye
Torn between
Here and there
To learn to go forward
One must learn to fall back.

Chasing dreams
Lines framing time

Chasing rainbows
With no end in sight

Chasing butterflies 
Fantasies delight

    Wonderful poem. :) This is why we, as women, must cling to Proverbs 31:30: "Charm is deceitful and beauty is fleeting, but a woman who fears the Lord, she is to be praised." Blessings! ~Rachel
