A Beauty Restored

A Beauty Restored

Look in the mirror when you have something to say
widen your eyes to an opening today,
when the demons exert from their place on your shelf
it’s time to realise, your only yourself.
Pick up your memories, your abiding truth
remember your reasons, remember your roots,
look to the loves you’re missing the most
but don’t say goodbye to your relative ghost.
Serving your trauma, you’ve endured your pain
it’s time to reminisce and smile again,
life has to be lived, as the past is adored
for faith in your beauty to be truly restored.
