Dreaded Reflection

H.Sanbika is medically oriented by degree though she's not practicing it currently, Her passion on scribbling thoughts dragged her here.

Confront the dark parts of yourself, and work to banish them with illumination and forgiveness. Your willingness to wrestle with your demons will cause your angels to sing.

- August Wilson


Dreaded Reflection

I see her in the mirror

An ugly girl of terror

Her face was dull and oily

Scar and pimples marked it badly

Dark circled her yellowed eyes

They look so cold and flat

Her hair was dry and messy

Like she hadn't bath even for a day

She glared at me impassively

And yes, I can see what she wants to say

But I was shocked when she stretched her arms

So I tried my best to avoid those hands

But it caught my neck and strangled me bad

It was sucking all the life I had

Fear over took my mind

All my limbs went numb

I was to surrender everything I had

And tried to whisper a prayer above

But was soon surprised for the next thing she did

She put her hands off the lid

I looked at her and asked her why

With tears in her eyes, she said goodbye

But before she's gone, she turned around

She uttered something in a gentle sound

Love and live your life to its very best

The sun surely rises on the east

Don't ever try to follow me

So even now, you do still look like me

But someday soon you will see

That special person you are meant to be
