By Mary-Margaret Andrulot

What do your eyes see

As they peer into the darkness

That lies beyond the glass?


Do they capture the glimmer of stars

In all of their infinity, the universe

And every endless possibility?


Are you, too, crushed

By the weight of the world?

Can you recognize your reflection

Gazing back from the darkness?


Who are you,

And how will you justify

The space you fill

Amongst those stars?
