Have you ever spent a day with yourself,
appreciating yourself,loving yourself
for who you are?
Have you ever lived for yourself
and simply enjoyed being alive?
Do you remember who you used to be
before you became the person that
you are now?
Stare into the mirror.
Look hard and you'll see that the
stranger there has loved you,
has carried you, all along,
this one who is yourself
but is now cloaked by
the shadows of your life,
and the shadows of another.
Celebrate this one,
bring your deeper self out,
sit down together, and feast long
on who you are,
and who you yet can be.
