Look inside

Look inside

Face yourself,
Communicate with your soul, your innermost self,
The one you have reserved,
just for your loneliness-
Untainted by the surroundings.
If you overcome the feat
of facing yourself,
You will overcome everything.
Have faith,
Forgive yourself
You owe yourself your own trust.
I promise nothing can break you,
Once you’ve come to terms,
With the actual, real You.

Whimsical Phoenix
