Mirror Mirror

Mirror, mirror
on the wall,
reflect the truth
lest I fall…
Show me a picture,
crystal clear
of how I should travel
absent of fear.
Truth be told
and seen with the eye
is all I need
to move forward
and try.

Mirror Mirror
on the wall
I’ve searched my soul,
I now stand tall.
I know the truth…
it’s set me free
to be the woman
I am meant to be.

This is a digitally altered photo of a friend who was so deep in thought, she didn’t even see me taking her picture. I knew I wanted something unusual to go with this poem; I think this works…


woman, pink, vibrant, abstract, african american art, color, colorful, art therapy, grief therapy, survivor, creative, creativity, angels, inspiration, women, divine wisdom, messages, faith, angel, journal art, trust, understanding

I’m an abstract-expressionist painter… a mixed media, encaustic, collage artist who uses a non-objective, emotive style of creative expression and visual messaging. I create to survive, to LIVE with more JOY and less pain. ART (plus faith in God) is what sustains me.
