Getting to know myself better
The ins and outs of my personal being.
The one I see when I look in the mirror
Will be loved, including her insecurities.
This means time alone.
Far away from the hustle of life
Enjoying my natural skin tone.
Whether its dark, brown, light, or white
Breaking free from the thing
Holding me back.
Spoke words of encouragement
And my spirit spoke them back.
True and simple.
Yet easy to deny and complex
I wanted to change my life’s ripple.
So I took the first step
Walked in newness
Gradually changed my thoughts.
Understood inferiority is useless
Why not boldly live for a cause ?
I used to think my reflection highlighted
Every blemish on my body.
But under further investigation I realized
It was my mirror(mind) that was spotty
