The face she sees in the mirror

Is not her own. It is the face

Of her generation, tired and sad

With sunken eyes and deep smile

Lines, resigned to accept her place

As a Nobody in a crowd of many.

The mouth that was quick to laugh,

And quicker to speak her mind,

Is now in the early stages of a

Permanent frown. How can the

Years weigh so heavy on one

So young? Her shoulders sag now.

When she walks she stares at

Her feet, refusing eye contact with

A world that has forsaken her.

It’s all about boys and girls in

China now. India. Japan.She can’t

Compete; doesn’t bother to anymore.

In a world of seven billion,

It’s so easy

To be

Alone.
