Faithful Forty: Day 18

Faithful Forty: Day 18

The truth is

if I counted every petal

only the stalk would remain

any day of the week

and as warm and bright as

the sun

you remain

the beauty that you see

mirrored back every day

though you don’t see it

that way

but it’s true

the soft and ridged petals

pink, red, yellow, all colors

bounce back your beauty

inside, out, in all ways

you are you,

I hope that you can see

what I see

delicate, soft, yet

strong, resilient

don’t forget

when you look in the mirror

you see everyone,

we connect, shine, and reflect

each other.
