Painted warrior

Blank canvas face speckled from vivid life

awaits re-imagining,

the artist paints gentle layer of untouched ivory skin,

brushes golden dew over insomnia cavern eyes,

lines timid brows with a brave oak brown,

darkens lash line smokey charcoal,

tints lip scarlet red

like fresh blood

like war paint

like warrior

she stares fiercely into mirror,

this new woman staring back breathes deeply

stands up to enter the unknowns of today

embraces life’s beautiful chaos
