This mirror does not show me.

All I see is a girl, pale as the moonlight,
The ghost of a heart once pure white.

But when I lift my hand, she lifts hers too.
Who is this girl? She's blurred into ash hues.

There's something, though, that screams out loud:
A sparkle in her eye proclaims, "I AM PROUD."

A twitch at her lips, a fourth of a smile
Surfaces from a decade's exile.

A burst of a rainbow, a ray of sunshine,
'I'M GOING TO LIVE," is today's headline.

So now, I finally see me.
Smile. It takes physically less effort and is emotionally miraculous.

Also #1 in 100 Themes, "The Mirror."
