Been looking for a mirror in this house for the last one hour
You’d think for a beautiful lady like her she’d have mirrors at every corner
There wasn’t any. How does she do it? I wondered
For a look like the one she adorns I’d be hours infront of that mirror, revisiting each chance i got.
No one matches her beauty. Because it’s not only physical, a clean and loving heart she has. Covers all shades we didn’t like.
So after a struggle convincing myself that I can
I get hold of my bag and walk out to meet her.
‘Hello madam’ they tell me. A wave here another there then I realize it’s decency,confidence and a smile and a little kindness- a start to beauty.
Maybe twas today’s magic, I’ll work again tomorrow. Keeping away from mirrors. Except for the one that naturally comes with my phone. A girl’s gotta have back-up😊.
To all beautiful aunties, mum’s, sisters, grandma’s, and beautifully souled men…
