it’s all in the mind!

Standard

I may have aged

but

in my heart

I will always be

a young girl

live dream achieve

Standard

go, leave

make a life for yourself

live dream achieve

say those words to the world

thanking us

your parents …

…visit the home

when we are old or gone

tell all

we meant the world to you

but

no one will know

how each minute of our lives

we missed

you being with us

our children

Standard

growing up

they

never leave our side

and

we have no time

for ourselves

until

one day

they go away

to make their own lives

and we

have all the unwanted time

in the world

sixteen in her mind

Standard

she was sixteen

bubbling with youth

and beauty

until

she looked into the mirror

and

realised

it was all in her mind

and

youth had left her

years ago

her avatar

Standard

a simple metal pendant

faded red lips

sun tanned skin

old sari

chipped nails

discoloured nail paint

threadbare shawl

but those eyes

looking around

for someone

who would

like her

in that avatar
