At what cost

do we hide our light?

Fear that paralyzes,

depriving us the prizes

that self expression holds.


When darkness seeks to

snuff the heart of love

it feigns a friendly face

as its icy fingers trace

lines of doubt upon the brow.

You must not ask it in

nor accept its judgment sharp

lest your soul it deftly slice

as defeat it doth entice,

that clever jealous liar.


The looking glass is true,

it knows not of deceit.

Be courageous, look inside

there is no need to hide

the reflection that is you!

Be Brilliant!
