Skin and Truth

“For now we see in a mirror, dimly, but then we will see face to face. Now I know only in part; then I will know fully, even as I have been fully known.” —1 Corinthians 13:12 (NRSVA)

Years of stretching and pulling

Endless tossing and turning

All the questions, doubts and complete denial

Seeking and searching for your approval

Feeling alone, rejected, an outcast

Looking for understanding and acceptance

Your face was blank, nothing, a void

Running and hiding…I thought from you?

I did not fit! Out of Style! Out of date?

The years have made you soften

The roughness of your edges are slowly disappearing

Truth, it finally came to me…

The most unexpected of places

-Within me-

Not my reflection in a mirror

Not an action or expression

My heart, my very soul-

I had not accepted me

My obstacle in life has begun to fade.

“For surely I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord, plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope. Then when you call upon me and come and pray to me, I will hear you. When you search for me, you will find me; if you seek me with all your heart.” — Jeremiah 29:11-13
