by Jill N. Pontiere

You awake in the morning, look into the mirror

The lady staring back at you looks different

This morning you notice the changes, they crept in

overnight while you slept, something is missing

You feel invisible


Your coffee cup in your hand, you lay back on your

pillows and begin your morning surf

Not on a wave, but on a silly little electronic pad

After a while you aimlessly wander to your closet

Find something to wear

Heading out the door to the gym, grocery store, and lunch with a friend


At lunch you exchange the usual conversation

People of all ages are coming and going

As you look across the room you see younger people watching each other, engaged in laughter, conversation, flirting, and touching.

Again, you feel invisible

When did your younger self leave you?


Right then and there, you refuse to be invisible; you reinvent yourself

You open your arms to embrace life and try something new

Most importantly, you believe in yourself

and you are no longer, inVISIBLE
