I am the image of revision
No longer picture perfect or unique
The ideal reflection of value, success, love and respect

I’ve seen the loss of hope
And broken dreams
Within my mother’s eyes
After endless hours of tedious work
The torment of stress and strain
I’ve watched as the spark of life
No longer twinkles in her smile

I’ve heard the empty thoughts
The memories of the past
Remembrance of better things
Throughout the silence
I’ve heard the sobs
They cry of fear
And search for joy
Daily reminders to strive for the best
Treat others how I would like to be treated
And to know the difference between a want and a need

In a sense
My being is a sign of struggle
As well as achievement
Though we’ve all suffered loss and regret
We’re still here
making through each day.
