Introspection

Updated: Jan 15

Look into yourself

Picture a shelf of very fine wood,

Properly stained and varnished.

The wood is expensive and beautiful\

And you can see its flowing grain.

But today it has a coat of dust.

You take your finger and trace a word in the dust,

So that the letters are clearly seen in the beautiful wood.

Introspection

Is allowing yourself to trace your future,

Through the dust of failure, disappointment, and sadness

To see that future written in a manner

That reveals the beauty at your core.

As you remove the dust,

You will wish to polish it to its natural brightness.

Now picture the future of that shelf

Stacked with your finest stories.
