Reflection reveals a life lived;
once taut skin relaxed into middle age.
Narrative eyes with stories to tell.
There is a sadness, it is true
but so much more besides.
Success shines through her smile;
contoured cheekbones raised in joy.
Hope radiates from her gaze.
She has fought to be here
her journey deserves praise.
Behold, with pride,
this woman in her prime.
