A Poem by Denise Vasquez for National Poetry Month


"Reflection" by Denise Vasquez ©1999

An alarm went off
Inside my head
When I woke up this morning
And got out of bed
It said
Be happy
You're alive
Not dead
So I looked in the mirror
And what did I see
A reflection
Somebody
Looking 
Right through me
The Reflection 
Smiled
And I was filled with Glee
I am happy
Happy to be me
