12 – Close Look

Look a little closer: what do you see?

You see hazel eyes with flecks of brown just like your mother’s. 

You see rosy lips with two sharp peaks that curve into a smile. 

You see blonde lashes that curl into the light.

You see the chicken pox scar on your torso that winks white against your skin. 

You see a mole in the very centre of your left hand. 

This is your reflection. It belongs to you. 

(It belongs to me.)
