This is really hard. So, this is me baring my soul. This is revealing and – at the same time- empowering. Not what I’d intended to post today. But I know many will relate, empathize and understand. This is what was on my heart to write and share with you.
In the mirror I see
A lot of failure in me.
The mirror reflects back
Only a person on attack.
Why can’t I be
The best friend to me?
Instead all I do
is repeat the bad to you.
When instead there lies
So much that’s beautiful in my eyes.
Why am I the first
To attack with the worst?
Why these glasses of negativity
Instead of all the good that others see.
Why do I push such hate on me
When through tears I write and can not even see.
I have no illusions of who I am
But why do I push such crap and spam?
Why can I not love and just show Grace
For the reflection in the mirror of my face.
If I were my child or even my best friend
I would show loyalty to the end.
Why the hate, why the failure, why such ‘you don’t do enough’
When I would only LOVE someone else SO much.
So I reveal my soul, hoping you can relate
And give back love, not hate.
So this I wish for me, for all –
That we would love ourselves, all of y’all.
I continue my path, God as my guide;
I know His love is deep and wide.
Thank you, as I learn to love myself
Empower and not put on a shelf.
This reveal, this authenticity
Is part of you, certainly part of me.
I wish from now on only hope, only love,
Continuing as my guide, God above.
Wishing you love, and empowerment today, my friends. Thank you for letting me share just a part a who I am – and a part of the journey that is: THE EMPOWERED MOM.
