A Journey from Victim to Survivor…to Living Freely

The Essence

The Essence

Where does it reside?

Why can it hide so readily

at the core causing such a search

for truth?

 

Is it the parent who delights

in the sweet smell of her children?

In her smiles and laughter?

Her playful nature?

 

So many layers

Too many layers

To be cut away

In searching for the essence.

 

One can only cut

So many times

To find the

True and authentic self.

 

And yet, there she was all along

For the essence of her was visible

To all she encountered

And she had forgotten to look into the mirror.
