From Me To Me. - Poem by Safiyyah Manjra

What would be a nice gift for myself?

I thought of maybe a new bracelet,
Or a shoe with a comfortable fit.

Then a peculiar thought came to mind,
Something of which I have yet to find.

It is mastering myself.

For I am getting older,
Yet to know the mind of the face which I see in the mirror.

Some days I can be overwhelmed,
Bewildered as to how often I have to pretend.

For days can seem so foreign,
Instead of knowing what is therein.

Then, there are those little glimmers of hope.
Those words which make you cope.

That feeling,
Which occupies your entire being.

The one who tells you,
You must continue.
