She looked in the mirror,
what did she see?
A woman that’s happy,
peaceful and free.

For the first time in her life,
she felt in total control.
Knew she could reach,
any passionate goal.

She did not forget,
the path that she took.
With ups and downs,
like any good book.

She nodded and smiled,
as she found her own light.
Her eyes were wide open,
with acknowledging delight.

Those around her,
repeatedly asked how.
Her answer was simply,
about acting right now.

She wasn’t competing,
but was rather unique.
Adventures in life,
she’d continue to seek.
