Loving the girl in the mirror

Delusive was the name of her inner shaman
spending words with outdated emotion
She was enchanted by an indecorous spell
underneath, scalding fraud
A ruse toffee covered the reality core
sticky but not sweet

An honorable truth by a confrere remained steadfast
Pouring a healing measure of kind clarity on the plagued glue
A true gifting soul without hinder
no unsavory wrap to sour

Soothed she was in the lightness of understanding
Tinctured with heart healing
A bouquet softness in frank kindness
Measured for good measure

Retracing her heart-will governed by past stitches
she saw the fray of her ways
Her brutess the inward caged think blots

She embroidered this intarsia “Love Thy Self” on her sleeve
An inbreathe love for her Ashram’s foundations to begin
The emotional rudder to steer advancing storms
and loving the girl in the mirror
