Poem: Woman in the Mirror


If the lines of tiredness appear,
Woman in the mirror,
Beautiful,

Triggering,
Finding,
If she looks too long,
The demons appear,

The old spirits,
The old haunts,

The soul in a body,
Disjointed,
Moccasins of the ancestors,
Ancient,
Showing up,
Invisibly,
Concrete beneath me,
But the leather on legs and feet,
Soil beneath,
The territory beneath,

Woman in the mirror,
Down to Earth,
Crows,
The song of crow,
Listen,

Woman in the mirror,
Diligent in soul retrieval,
Revival,
Resurrection from the dead,
Because resurrection from the dead,
Is hard when you have simultaneous setbacks,
Revival restitution,
Clinging to the soul,
Hold on,
Hold on,

Woman in the mirror,
You are beautiful,
Beauty found in the soul,
Heart,
Spirit,
Shine,
In the darkness.
