self

out of the corner of my eye

there was a girl in the mirror today

but i did a double take

thinking it was me

i realized i didn’t know her

i realized it was someone different

but each time i looked up 

the girl was so familiar

and i thought

is this what my self looks like now?

is this what it’s like to catch yourself

in the midst of change

and realize

you don’t know 

the you in you anymore?

if it is

i can’t feel scared

confused

or unimpressed

only a bit surprised

at what i looked like now

standing beside what i looked like then

each beautiful

in their own

very special way
