I stare at my reflection in the water.
A calmness in the storm, my mind is strong and certain.
This image is a pond for the many eye that view
but for me, it conveys much more than anyone can know.
The reflection is like a crossroads for me, personal, painful.
But the calmness of the water fills me already with its healing touch.
This water gives me strength as I drink and have courage in my heart.
For I am worth more than water, than air and earth.
I am my own creation and I stand at this reflection of change.
With my new found voice, in words and in spirit,
I am facing uncertain times which require courage.
Facing failure, yet also success in my new found image of myself.
Drowning yet floating, despairing yet hoping,
of a better life and a new sunrise at dawn.
To love myself more and to be loved in return.
I stare at the reflection,
it winks back at me.
Go on girl be brave,
take the future, and with those words already penned, hold the future in your hands.
Stroke the water, ripple the reflection and cause a stir no-one will forget.
