Mirrors To Her Soul

by mizaru

Look deeply into Xena's eyes and you see
not the tranquility expected of that crystal blue
but rather the darkness of a past that nearly consumed her
a past that gave her no opportunity to feel
one of innocence forfeited

Her path to greatness as a warrior began
first out of necessity
then was driven by greed, and now,
having come full circle
from an unselfish desire to right the wrongs in her past

Each new day brings with it
an opportunity to re-awaken
another piece of the tortured soul
that lay dormant for so long

Through Gabrielle, she has found inner strength
and a loyalty borne of mutual respect and admiration
rather than of fear
It is through her eyes that Xena can see the world
not as it is, but as a promise of what it can be
