Saw a girl in the mirror,
I didn’t know who is she,
She isn’t me, I am not her,
She’s just a reflection,
Of what others are meant to see.
She’s not the past, nor the future,
Just someone caught in the journey of life,
She isn’t perfect, forever changing.
Got a knowing smile,
As she knows she’s wiser than before,
With still a long way to go,
Completely at peace with herself.
