by Hazel Rain

She looks at herself, the girl with the lavender on her arm
with her withering words, that she’s trying to grow back,
the bright eyes,
the freckles turned stars.
The face she finally feels happy to look at, and decides
Today is the day to feel beautiful.
She holds up her hands 
and her face in poses,
relearns her passions 
looks in the mirror and says 
‘I adore you.’
She soars, she dances
as her life starts to change right in front of her.
