    Mirror myself, see what I havent seen before, looking deep into my eyes walking through my soul's door.

    I havent seen my reflection in a long time; now I see whats been hidden and what obstacles I had to climb.

    This is in the midst of society to hide and cover true feelings, well this time my heart's true tune really sings.

    Giving me advice, letting me see what i had to see, "Look within this mirror, young one, can you see why your mind need to be free"?

    I wondered for a while asking why would my heart say these things, Why would my heart come here to sing.

    This mirror - just an ordinary object - let me see more about who i am as a person, I am a growing woman and my journey has just begun.

    So, look into the mirror once in a while whenever your feeling down, You would see where your ora is at now.

    Even though it can be overwhelming at times, it's good to do some soul searching. We can review what we've experienced and what we have learned from those experiences. I liked this introspective write.

    Not many young minds take the time to stop by the mirror, and I admire you for the intelligence that beholds you, I enjoyed your flo.
