She Meets Herself

SELF REFLECTIONHave you ever wanted the person you long to be to meet the person you currently are? It can be a great truth to come out of such a meeting IF it could happen. All we have is the mirror, but that still shows us as we are in the flesh. What if that window showed you what you could be? Just think about it. We all have been placed on this Earth for a purpose. Is the current you walking in that purpose? Would you love to know how life would be once you actually are living in that purpose? “She” runs into “Herself,” and this poem plays back the conversation.


Hey! How are you?! Been a long ti…
You just gonna walk past me like that?
Here comes another passerby.
Hey! Yea, you…
Well, fine then! I don’t need you either.
Why don’t these people know me?
I know them well.
I just looked in the –
Wait! Wait! Come back!
I need   to   talk   to   you.
Let me look again.
I see me.
Maybe, I’ll just make eye contact.
Maybe, they don’t recognize my voice.
I have been away for a while.
Another just passed me too.
I left a long time ago, but surely I haven’t been gone so long I’m unrecognizable.

Wow, FINALLY, someone who knows me.
I look like a girl you know?
What’s her name?
And I look a lot like her?
They say everyone has a twin…I guess.
She has my name though…wait!
Identity theft…
Can I ask you something else?
This girl who looks like me; where can I find her?
Why don’t these people know me?
I know them well.

Knock, knock, knock
My body is a concrete block.
Say something…anything…don’t just stare at her
Who IS this chick who just answered MY door?
Let me check the number again.
Do you know me?
You do? I gotta be dreamin, so I’ll just go with it
I’m sorry to just stare at you, but you look so much…
Like me; yea.
May I ask your name?


My name is yours.
My life is yours.
My beauty is yours.
My gifts are yours.
I look so much like you because I AM you.
You relinquished control of yourself a long time ago.
I signed the paperwork and left with everything.
Sound mind
Oh yes, I took it all.
Why?! Well, you didn’t really fight for it.

I bought me some FIERCE red bottoms
and strutted right down to MY house.
You can’t wear a heel, can you? No matter…I can.
Huh? What’s that?
Oh yes, MY husband is here, and uh…MY child is too.
Of course this is real honey.
Don’t get upset with me…
You left with what you came with.
You can’t fight hope with despair.
You can’t expect self-imprisonment to knock out freedom.
Panic and fear? No match for sound mind and courage…
Clearly, you didn’t want this life, but I sure did.

I am your beauty; fading in your mirror –
Blossoming in mine
I am your gift; unused and untapped in your world –
I am your wellness; unattainable goal in your mind –
Fully realized in mine.
I am your peace; sleepless nights in your bed –
Lullabies in mine.
You see, you still have just enough to have it all back.
Enough what? Must I guide you through it all?


Your life isn’t over; that’s nowhere near the plan.
YOU made it the plan, but that plan, dear, is CANCELED.
Look at me!
I’m telling you, this is yours and it’s waiting for you.
I had to get out because you were crowding her royal highness with the blah blah blah.
But I also had to get out so you can see where you’re going,
And know you WILL get there.
Nothing is holding you.
No negotiator needed.
You are NOT a hostage.
So shall we live?

Welcome home Us!
