YOU LOOK LIKE YOUR MOTHER

Everyone says I look like you

I’ve never seen the resemblance

Until now

I look into these big brown eyes

And I see it

I see what they see

It’s the sadness

The way they curve slightly downwards

The way they glisten with tears

They way the brows scrunch with anxiety

Fear that the sadness will show

Using all their strength to not let the tears fall

Why are we sad?

I look into the mirror

And I see you

And I ask us

Why are we so sad?
