What does it mean to see yourself?
To see the connection within?
What does it mean to look into your soul
To meet the person you could've been?
Have you ever looked back at your forks in the road?
Wondered if you chose the right path?
Have you ever been tasked with making the decision
In whether to move forward or turn back?
Have you ever fallen in love?
Looked into the eyes of another?
Had to leave that person behind
To follow the light of your future?
Have you ever felt that pain before?
Did it help you find your strength?
In choosing the person you were meant to be
Instead of turning to distraction to escape?
Did you know that they loved you too?
Did you know that you're never alone?
Even if you heart has been carved from your soul
It doesn't need to turn to stone
Can you see the woman in front of you?
There's a reason she looks familiar
It's more than just the color of her eyes
It's ok that you feel safe with her
I know you have your suspicions
I think you know you're right
You're gazing into the face of your future
Look into the pool in her eyes
Do you see your past and present?
Do you see how you'll continue to rise?
Through the storms and rain and clouds
And into the sunny skies?
Into a world you're meant to see
Into a brand new galaxy
Do you see the height of the mountain you are?
Do you feel the power in your seas?
She knows how hard it is
The weight of the decisions you have
But she knows what sits within
The flame that's guiding you on your path
Open your eyes and ears
There's so much left for you to hear
Allow that flame to burn inside
And release that temporary fear
Continue to look in her eyes
She's never led you astray
She's never led you to your demise
What is she trying to say?
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 :)
