The Yesterday Girl

I smile at the girl in the mirror
she is beautiful
she is not afraid
she is not the yesterday girl

who sat in corners
with only pictures to keep her company
drawn on her own skin
with sharp shiny steel pins

with her own blood for ink

pictures of her pain
there was so much to paint
words she was not strong enough to make heard
there was so much to say

today i see a girl who stood up from that corner
and asked for a hand to hold
and found a different way of speaking

now there is no need for pictures

i smile at the girl in the mirror
she is beautiful
she is not afraid
she is not silent
she is not the yesterday girl
