Empowerment Through Self-acceptance

Each lock of hair fell to the floor
and as if they had been the weights
of some unspoken burden
carried in her heart,
felt lighter.

It was not some
revelation she felt
staring in the mirror,
for she knew this woman
better than anyone.

Now there was no curtain
to hide behind, and she
would face her battles
head on.
