Look in the mirror
But look beyond what seems to appear
Why can't you see the thoughts that hide in your brain
That are waiting to be heard
As loud as your thoughts of pain?
There are statements sitting
In the crevices
Waiting for you to uncover their purpose
There's a whole world within that one single mind
But you can't see beyond the color of your eyes
To see the galaxy shining beneath
Waiting to be known and waiting to be seen
Can you feel what lies behind your heart?
There's a force that's been sitting there from the very start
From the second you were born to the minute your body will die
The universe lives and faces death
Within every single breath of life
That you send out into this planet earth to be picked up by the trees
Where they turn it into magic
That continues to feed you and me
It's a scientific fact
It's called the Circle of Life
Nature is the reason our bodies haven't died
But what's keeping our souls alive?
Is it the thoughts of expansion
Sitting in your mind?
Is it the galaxies hiding behind your eyes?
Is it the entire universe
That's made a home in your heart?
Is it the feeling of unity
That's missing when two lovers are apart?
Is it in the feeling of love?
Is it hidden in the world of emotions?
Is it being carried in the power of the currents
As a gift from ocean to ocean?
Can you hear it in the wind through the trees?
In the connection between the flowers and the bees?
Can you see it in the cycle of the death and rebirth
Of the autumn to spring to summer leaves?
Or can you see it when you look in the mirror?
Can you feel that soul inside you?
Can you see beyond the limitations of the body
And feel that force within you?
Do you understand who you are?
And who you're meant to be?
Do you understand that a death on this earth is simply the death of a body?
Where does your soul go?
Did you know that you have a spirit?
And did you know that you'll be reunited with the other souls in existence?
Did you know that there's a god?
Beyond what you saw in church?
Did you know that that god is you?
That he lived in your soul first?
Can you see this when you look in the mirror?
Can you see that force and that light?
Can you feel the colors of all that exists?
Or can you only see the color of your eyes?
About the Creator
I spend a lot of time writing poetry and short essays on freedom, mental health, societal structures, feminism, and philosophy. Writing is how I process my thoughts and I hope what I share resonates with you :)
