There is nothing to fear in turning inward
We are meant to dissect the fibers of our souls
To reassess our motives, our patterns, our worth
Seeing with painful clarity what we must do
To remove the barriers standing in the way
Of awakened perspective
Of movement forward
Perhaps there will be some discomfort
In sharpening the lenses of our colored glasses
As our surroundings become jaggedly clear,
This is when the flaws of our distorted thoughts surface
When we see the cycle of our own dysfunctions
When we finally begin to prioritize our own healing
By recognizing the ways we inadvertently hurt ourselves
And we choose to take the path of self-reflection instead
To heal the wounds at the root of our behaviors
Helping ourselves so that we may wholesomely help others
Without expectation, without fear, with love unfeigned
The way we do when our souls are renewed.
