Can you see your beauty?


can you see your beauty, darling?

 lost in time, stuck in your head, frightened and proud


but can you see your beauty?



always, always it is there


in your struggle

controlling and cowed

 in your monotony

in your doubt

in your blindness

lost in the crowd 



and then:


the smile of a friend

a bird in flight

a long lost scent

a beautiful sight


your thoughts stop

you awaken


a split second

of recognition

a split second

of reunion

a split second


of Home




when you see your beauty, darling

the world will heal throughout
