She never saw the light
She never saw the life
When she looked at her on the other side
She never recognized what she saw
There was pain in place of her Big brown eyes
There were dark circles under them
From the nights she spent contemplating on what her life should have been

She never saw the light
She never saw the life
When all she knew was pain and anger and bitterness
She stared and looked at herself and tried to “stretch” her full red lips into what she would have wanted to see....
A smile
What she had desired to know how to do

She never saw the light
She never saw the life
When they made her feel bad about herself
When they told her she wasn’t worth it
When they demeaned her and called her nobody
When she stood and looked at herself, she saw a “nobody”
She wanted to be somebody

She is the light
She is the life
She is both fire and ice
You choose what to bring out of her
She is the fire that warms up the cold air and the ice that cools the heat... 😉
Her Big Brown eyes are the mirror to her soul and her full lips, well... She is the light
She is the life... ~Sheerow Kanyiri. #Dayone 📷@Shirleyelsie MUA: @makeupbymumbi
