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
