You look in the mirror like you are a prisoner of your past
Like you captured it and still possess it as you stare at yourself with eyes of self judgement and condemnation.
You look in the mirror and made prophesies of your future and feed them with bits of your past.
You look at yourself without kindness and compassion.
you are not finished yet.
Where you are now and where you have been is not the end of your story.
See those scars? The ones you hide from the world?
you think they whisper about your self worth.
They tell stories of victory and triumph.
they are trophies of battles fought and won.
They are your armour of inner strength
Your story is still being told and your legacy is still unfolding
you are not finished telling your story
look closer in the mirror
Now tell the story again
But this time speak like you are free
and act kinder to yourself
and know you are worth the fight.
