I can see the pain,the sorrow in her eyes.

She's hurting, and so am i.

Her eyes reflecting back on mine. the way the mirror 

changes the way she's looking at me.


She says she's ok. but she's not.

she puts a smile to prove.

But the mirror shoes her truth. her tired

eyes.her worn out hands.

it shows her true phase.It's the reflection of a tired woman,

who wants the best for her children, who has given up so many things for my 

brother and I.

It's the woman i proudly call Mom.
