Reflections of Life & Dreams

Norman Rockwell understood life and all its complexities. He painted the young girl reflecting on her future, curious to discover what it had in store for her, and wondering how she could and would open the doors to all the grand possibilities.

No matter what your age, exploring the possibilities is exciting and challenging.

 

REFLECTIONS

By Marlene J. Waldock

When I look into the mirror

I see a funny face

A crooked nose, and eyes too close,

And lines that I can trace.

A body that goes up and down

The scale and dress size too

It’s not what’s in my mouth so much

My head is like a zoo

Sometimes I feel I’m in a cage

A lion with a roar

And other times I’m oh so free

An eagle, I can soar.

If only I could fix the flaws

And look like all the rest

Then I could hold my head up high

And feel I’m at my best.

But beauty comes from deep within

It’s not a surface thing

And even with my flaws and such

I have a lot to bring

To feel secure within my soul

All I need to do

Is love myself, for then you see

My beauty will shine through
