I stare at the mirror 
Watching reflections of me
From the old I recognize
The child that was to be
In secret hopes and dreams
A super hero flying free

Next reflection
A youth confident
Strong and persistent
In thoughts and ideals
Yet still a teen 
Searching for freedom
Chafing at chains
Only to dream free

Time passes 
Reflection changes
A woman now perceives
In child, teen, woman
The changes and the similarities
How years have changed thee 
So many reflections
of achievements and disappointments
Ideals changed and perceived
That I will always be Me
