Happy New Year...

Peering into a shattered mirror, I try to find myself,
However, all I am is faceless.
I gave up searching because I am always lost.
You lost when you took away my mirror,
My only hope of learning, and living.
Why can you not fix me?
Oh, right how could I forget you did this to me?
I am trying to get over it, over you,
But finding broken pieces of my heart lying
Around me, reminding me of being not whole.
Looking at me in my mirror only leaves me scared and confused.
I cannot see me, I am faceless.
The world does not see me,
They see a title.
Help me find myself,
Why must I grow knowing I am faceless?

The face of FASD is sometimes faceless, silent as the world goes by not knowing that we exist. I want you to look me in the eyes and not shut me out, not forget about me. I am here. Maybe you need to look in your mirror.
