“Who am I?”
The ageless question.
Simple for some,
Difficult for others.
I search my conscience
And upend memory
Weigh my heart on the scales of deep truth
Think of the lengths to which I would go
And the lines I would dare not cross
In there, somewhere
I find but fractions of my nature
Yet still I am pleased
For every sliver of self discovery
Is more than priceless!
Who am I; if I’ve seen through an angel’s eyes
And dwelt in a demon’s lair
If I’ve scaled the mountains of love
And endured the chasms of depression
Who am I if I long to soothe each lonely heart
And bring a tear of emotion to all
If I seek to touch the darkness within
And tell it; that there is no reason it can’t be beautiful
That longing is a pathway to empathy
And that depression can herald selfless love.
Who am I, if not a writer at heart
Seeking each one
And belonging to all.
And so I seek a soulful artist
A passionate photographer
And an intuitive designer
To create the cover to my story
Hue it in dark shades
And sparkle it with warm light
Undertones of beauty
That enhance its allure
A cover that reaches out
Tells you it’s okay
That someone is here
That someone understands
And you are not alone.
If you look, you can see in any face, your own desires and fears.
Reena’s exploration challenge – “If you are a book, what will the cover be?”
I hope you enjoyed this.
Reena challenged us this week, to portray ourselves in regards to the prompt above,
And I thank her for an opportunity to sift through my essence.
Stay safe everyone, Stay loving.
