Self-discovery

Updated: Feb 6

Come here,

take a look,

face the mirror.

Stare.


Get closer,

raise your gaze.

Lock eyes with your reflection.

Stay.


Look some more; it’s ok

your eyes are ready to hold your fate.


Fear will strike,

you will paralyze.

The heart will sting

while you lower your eyes.


Look again.

Find your gaze.

See the pain.

Stay.


Is that you in the mirror?

Is that you inside me?


See your beauty

see yourself;

your fragility

and your strength.


Look some more.

Explore.

Embrace the energy

of your tired eyes,

enjoy your reflection,

hold it tight.
