The Mirror

Updated: Dec 30, 2018

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.

Look closer

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

Look closer

Your story is still being told and your legacy is still unfolding

Look closer

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.
