REFLECTION by MARITZA OCAMPO

She’s there

the reckless spirit

the one who got you

through so much bullshit

the one you relied on

to pull you

out of the hole

you dug yourself

into

she’s there

she hasn’t cracked

she hasn’t left

she’s transforming

letting different

emotions

filter through

and settle in

challenging you

she’s waiting

taking some time

to be cautious

for what she’s done

Maritza is a Cal State San Bernardino MFA graduate and currently shares her love of stories to elementary school students as their spooky librarian. When not working or writing you can find her trying to maneuver her way into a wannabe roller skater. You can find her work in Huizache, Acentos Review and other lit journals.
