Do You See Me?

A poem by Layla Saad

What is it about
speaking our truth
that is at once both
frightening and exciting?

It is the possibility
of being seen.


And not just for our
shadows and the fears
that we keep so hidden
in the dark.

But for our Power, too.
For our dazzling light
and our undeniable beauty.

And for the way that we dance
this sacred dance of
Shadow and Light.
Light and Shadow.
One no less worthy
of love than the other.

Both needed
for wholeness.

This is the risk
and the opportunity
of living in truth.

The question is,
Are you ready to See yourself?
