Waiting by Kelli-Anne Collins //

Untitled by Frankie Stevens //

Mirrors reflect truth
What is otherwise unseen
Maybe that is why I’m afraid
To stare at my reflection
And truly see
What I am
And what I am not
To see the person before my eyes
I didn’t want to be
Who I see is a girl
Not a woman
A hopeful girl full of dreams
And aspirations
Yet full of self-doubt
And uncertainty
A girl with ideas
And a creativity
That goes unused
So I will not stare
At my reflection in the mirror
I don’t want to see the truth
That I wanted to be more
Much more than I am
