the difficult years



these are the difficult years
when you look in the mirror
blind to your own beauty
and I can't make you see through my eyes anymore

these are the difficult years
when you brush your hair with angry strokes
unsatisfied with wisps and imperfection
and I can't smoothe it anymore

these are the difficult years
when you stand in front of your closet
trying to fit in or stand out (depending on the day)
and I can't help you choose anymore

these are the difficult years
when you step into your own
discovering your own glorious wonder
and I won't hold you back anymore
