Qué sera sera

The painting is from artist Alia El-Bermani posted by Catherine La Rose at pinterest.com.

For the visually challenged writer, the painting shows a young girl sitting on a bucket in her bedroom looking at her reflection in a full-length mirror. She seems to have a fashion magazine open on her lap. On the floor next to her left foot is a doll on and some make-up brushes.


She sits in front of the mirror and dreams, dreams

The bittersweet pain of growing into an adult seems imminent

A fever of desire grips her young heart and leads her

Into unknown territory, where she feels both empowered and impotent

Playing with dolls is a thing of the past, now it’s time to experiment

With different looks, different styles, makeup, and dresses

A new world is waiting for her but she feels apprehensive too

She may not be able to understand or navigate the kinky road of pronouns

She want the time to stop so that she can go back

And seek the reassuring hug of her mom and her words

“Don’t worry my darling, everything will be okay”

  1. Those transitional stages are so difficult for many. If we only could get a glimpse of the future it may make taking that next step easier 💞 Nicely done, Sadje! 💞💞💞
