Self Inspection

Being honest with the self is a holistic process

that engages all aspect of consciousness.

When the results of your actions

do not meet your expectations,

take some time to revise your intentions.

All that has corroded beneath the shiny exterior

will affect all of life’s prospects by extension.

Revising the public persona maintained

tends to reveal nothing beyond the veil.

Unlike a mirror, self inspection reveals

the cycles we maintain.

And every splinter of the self,

will cut us to the bone,

until we face the truth in us,

we bleed from fear alone.
