Healing From Within


As I heat up my pen to tell the truth and not pretend

There’s a boiling stirring up as your mind you offer to lend

These words will be sold, that’s reality not arrogance or being bold

It’s temperature rising heat of hidden things now revealed

Though your body sweats from the created humidity that could make you ill

Your mind, for a moment may stand still from the exposing chill

The mirror proposes an image in the space that it fills

The real you reflects there, unless you choose to conceal

If so that’s your appeal, maintaining a false identity with vigor and overwhelming zeal

Insecurities masked, closed in, suppressed and sealed

Your success is measured by you on how much you conquer and steal

On your way up the ladder of sought out prominence

You want it in your control, to be super-imposed, with unparalleled dominance

That’s the turbulent calm most are up against, straddling the reality and fantasy fence

Actions stay intense, greedily to gain and attain, stopping at nothing to convince

Little time to relax, your mind and body are taxed, always tense

You have the appearance of deep importance, but you’re shallow and dense

Being true to your self is within reach, so let the healing commence

Put down the blockade mechanism you built, always on the defense

A little exposure will lead to closure, as pain becomes past tense

As you relent you become content seeking forgiveness for your transgressions you repent

God forgives and saves you right before you’re completely contorted and inflexibly bent

Now time is well spent in joy and achievement of great splendor

It’s really you in all you do, no longer the great pretender

If you start with the infamous mirror that’s where it all begins

The process is slow but you’ll determine to grow, as you’re Healing From Within
