Looking into a mirror.
The reflection looking back,
For so long was not the same.

Delicate as a rose.
Graceful in pure silence,
Whispering in the wind.

Sharp as barbwire,
Tough as leather.
A diamond in the rough.

Delicate or tough,
Its all the same.
A reflection of ones true self.

Be true of heart.
Be honest with yourself,
With the reflection looking back.
