Small child with uncovered bruises,

Waiting on the world to see,

Small child with tear filled eyes,

Why do you look like me?

Young woman with shaking hands,

Screaming for help.

Young woman who can barely stand,

Why do you remind me of when I ran away?

Lady with the blue eyes,

Like an ocean, current going wild.

Lady with a wounded heart,

Why do I feel we can’t depart?

Elderly woman with shattered wings,

Bent down to touch his cheek.

Elderly woman with sad goodbyes,

Why do I feel so weak?

Ice cold glass stands in between us two,

Me staring back at you,

Wrinkles of worry sliding down your cheek,

A tear in your eye,

You feel lost and weak.

We touch the glass,

Both at the same time.

…Elderly woman, You are me!
