Broken Mirror

With clenched fists, I stand before the mirror of my past,
I shatter it to pieces, breaking the many illusions I’ve cast;

Finally seeing the distortions of survival based on distance,
The few pieces missing, showing the developing self, so resistant;

As I look more closely, I can almost see,
The child inside of me that so desperately longed to be;

I can finally acknowledge that this behavior was taught,
I now have the power to choose who is allowed in and who is not;

It is safe for me now to connect my body to my head,
No longer afraid that my Quest for life is dead;

These reflections are the worlds that live inside of me,
Claiming my truth,
Pursuing my dreams,
And having the courage to be…
