Mirror

Who is she with lyrical dreams

and fantasies that mean nothing?

Why is she nothing worth caring for?

She is crippled, broken, hopeless today – 

she stopped hoping 

a while ago but can’t help wondering 

when she remembers and regrets

the chances she couldn’t take 

desperately wishing she did – 

the stars in her eyes are dimmer 

than those in her polluted skies – 

in the stained mirror she wonders who she sees 

before looking away – 

what is she worth if she means nothing 

to anyone?

What is she worth

in a world that won’t remember who she is? 

What is she worth?
