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.
