Internal Fire

Written by: Leighann Anderson

Many faces are reflected
within the mirror of trust,
cracks appear, broken trust
clusters the room of despair.
Rays of light rebound against
the shattered mirror making
the eyes shine brightly creating
an eerie shimmer.
Light combined transforms into
diamond starlight; precious and
unknown to most broken hearts.
Seeds of hope are sowed within
the soil of forgotten memories;
dimmed and dominated by cobwebs.
Slowly an internal fire grows from
a young flame to a lively blaze;
hot and strong.
Slowly the cracks shrink and 
melt becoming one with the mirror; 
whole and glittering.
Trust once again prevailing in
each internal world of our souls.
