“Mirror” by Kashaf Duja

“Mirror” by Kashaf Duja (Photo: Garidy Sanders)
Here I am regretting the past once again.
Laying on my bed, staring at the ceiling,
thinking about all the things I could change if I went back in time.
Trying hard to look at myself in the mirror.
Trying not to remember the past me.
But here I am living the past through my eyes again.
Hurting at the mistakes I’ve made.
Not knowing when I’ll escape the whirlpool of unforgivable memories.
Trying to hypnotize my brain.
Here I am again in front of the mirror forgetting who I am.
Realizing that I should have changed.
Not my past, but my mindset
Not everyone tells you that it’s ok to make mistakes
Every journey taken.
Every sorrow experienced.
They all made me who I am today.
They all pushed me to believe in myself.
Now here I am once again in front of the mirror.
Realizing how unique I am.
The painful past has only made me stronger.
Now I see there is so much more to me than I’ve ever believed.
Now I see so clearly.
The bright stars calling my name.
Now without hesitating.
I will spread my wings wide open and fly past the dark world.
I will fly past the black nights, past the heartless eyes.
I will fly high into the sky and finally removing all my regrets.
All my disbelief and all my weaknesses.
I will raise my hand and touch Polaris.
