Poem Commentary

A piece reflective of what i pray women around the world will embrace... We have so much to give , share , and learn from each other ...

Reflections of me , reflections of you

You should look at other women & see the beauty in yourself ,
Stop letting these Devils steal your inner wealth.
Be ashamed to tear down a fellow sister ,
If you succeed in wishing her dead , you may end up missing her ...Instead.

See we have more in common than the eye can see,
Your mirror , allows others to reflect who they could be.
a visual retreat for our feminity.
which whole heartedly denies our insecurities.

Reflections of me , reflections of you ...
we each hold each other's missing piece to pursue ..
Reflections of me , reflections of you,
without you i'll never find the answers to the clues...

When  I look at my sister gals , I see more than your pain, 
I see the strength it took to withstand the rain ...
Your my mirror , full of wonderful images ...
your true inner beauty displays riches greater than 
ten men's wages.

I see your youthful innocense , you thought you'd lost,
Our sacred love is free , Jesus paid the cost .
I enjoy learning the story of your growth,
since it took hard knocks to acquire that girth

Reflections of me , reflections of you ...
we each hold each other's missing piece to pursue ..
Reflections of me , reflections of you,
without you i'll never find the answers to the clues...

At first glance , you remind me of a whimsical dance,
I'm sometimes jealous of the reflective romance.
You see,..... through you , I can admire love at any age...
so your mirror becomes , my own private stage.

Let's build each other up , where the world tore  us apart ,
Show them we're more than beauty.. we're smart.
Erase the hate within ourselves, 
Leaving no room for fear on our shelves.


Reflections of me , reflections of you ...
we each hold each other's missing piece to pursue ..
Reflections of me , reflections of you,
without you i'll never find the answers to the clues...

With each smile , a projection of control and grace,
the light reveals , you've saved me a special place.
So I creep in and carefully clean the wounds ,
From greedy souls , who were quick to consume.

Please don't be so down , bitter , nor torn,
From Jehovah your intrusted and sworn.
Let's lift each other's spirits from those terrible pits,
Then rejuvenate from the mountain tips.

Reflections of me , reflections of you ...
we each hold each other's missing piece to pursue ..
Reflections of me , reflections of you,
without you i'll never find the answers to the clues...

Let's not sulk too long over sisters who have passed,
we carry them in our spirits , the wicked were out classed.
Remember not to tear down ,in a sister the part you may wear,
But always reflect love resound and clear.

We can visit each other , through our memory anytime,
Laughing , dancing and reciting rhymes ...
Yes, it's painful sometimes, the things we've endured ,
Through your support we become more secure

Reflections of me , reflections of you ...
we each hold each other's missing piece to pursue ..
Reflections of me , reflections of you,
without you I'll never find the answers to the clues...

There is no need to tear down our sisters. We are a circle and our lives are a mirror. Even if our situations, circumstances, are different, there is a piece to the situation you can relate to. Great write! A necessary piece of advice. I have found myself in many a woman I did not think I could relate to...............E

Yes , a lesson that took a great deal of time to learn ... but worth it when i share it , and someone else grows from it ...

Poetry is what is lost in translation.

Robert Frost (1875-1963) American Poet.
