Poetry, Reflective

Ego: a sense of self-esteem

IMG_1036

As a child I soared, adored.

Only later, in the eyes of others,

Did I shrink and wither in the shadow

Of my brothers.

Unsure still of my place, face,

Features unseen, a stranger reflected

In the mirrors that adorn walls at home,

Unaffected.

A mother of sons loud, proud.

My position more certain, more assured.

I look on in awe as they look to me,

Soared, adored.
