A true self poem

I usually don’t write poetry, but I participated in a spiritual activity the other week where I was challenged to reflect on a time when I felt I was my true self. After the reflection, I was supposed to write a poem. So I thought I would share it here:

My true self stands before you

So free, so full of wonder

So beautiful, so kind, so gentle

And you were there for me,

You held your arms wide open,

held me close, and said,

“I will never leave you…you are not alone.”
