Her

When you look at me
Do you see the unassuming girl
Who disappears behind the shadow of the passing faces,
Or do you see what I see in the mirror?
Do you see
A halo of reckless curls
Woven with coffee colored highlights, and
A pair of large, almond eyes
That are deeper than the sea and more soulful than the trees?
Do you see
That my timid lips hide a smirk and a tongue
That are laced with unapologetic truth?
Do you see
That my shoulders bear the weight of my success and
My hands are weathered from the labor of my mind?
Do you see
That my legs yearn to traipse the earth
Now that they have walked a mile in your shoes?
When you glance at my fading back
Do you wonder at the treasure you have missed?
