You don’t see yourself in your best moments

When you’re passionate and fervent

And talking about what you love.

You don’t see yourself

When your chest rises and falls

To your heartbeat

Curled up and rhythmic.

You don’t see yourself reading a book

Eyes enflamed with zeal.

There’s no mirror in your way

When you’re laughing and smiling

With happiness bursting from your seams

And laughter leaking from your being.

And you don’t see yourself looking at someone

With all the care in your heart.


But don’t worry

You will find people who will take your joy

And reflect it back to you.

They will refract your own light back

Until you glow in your unabashed beauty.
