  • Mirror, Mirror

    The mirror reminds you
    Of who you truly are
    Parched wrinkled skin
    Thinning hair says the comb
    Tired eyes

    Collateral damage of where you have been
    Loved and burned down
    Abandoned cities scorched earth
    Drinks on the patio
    Jagged fragments of momentary passion
    That still bleed you
    Like a poultice of leeches

    Take heart and remember
    Sojourner
    These scars of living you have accrued are not
    Signs of weariness
    But bright flags of courage and adventure
    Proudly displayed

    I like this Tanner! My grandmother always told me how wrinkles are traces of laughter and a life lived to the fullest...
    Though wistful at the start you chose to end with a heartwarming sense of selfhood.
    I find this admirable. I aspire to be the wrinkliest of all.

      Tanner,

      This is so very wonderful. As a person whose number of flags are increasing I am glad to have them to display.

      thanks for sharing this

        Both unflinchingly honest and agreeably defiant. You handle that counterpoint assuredly and insightfully, Tanner. What a humane work!

          No one says it like you do, Tanner. However, this a banner I would not wish to wave in public!

                Tanner really love the start of this with 'Sojourner ' immediately brought to my mind so many thoughts, emotions and feelings to my being, leading me to the conclusion. Coupling bright with flags and courage and adventure really brought it all together for me!

                thanks!!
