I wrote this a while ago-and is a bit sad-but it remains close to my heart. Enjoy!

I stare at a photo in black and white,
of a little girl-about 3.
Her eyes are wide and beautiful,
but terribly sad.
She wears a dress befitting a princess, and
the innocence gushes from her eyes.
I stare at her in black and white,
and suddenly realize, she is me.
I discover the horror I've always known,
my life was always meant to be in black and white.
"Your pain is the breaking of the shell that encloses your understanding" Khalil Gibran, The Prophet
