i'm looking for a little more
beneath the surface of my flesh
into the depths of my mind and spirit
my jewelry is following the lead
lingering quietly beneath
i think so often our potential is covered
by the judgment of others, past experiences,
and unfortunately our own critiques
but it still exists!
our potential will always exist
it takes courage and love to push through
and take a deeper look into what we can be
how we can live better,
i believe love and acceptance can be contagious.
breaking the opacity and shining outward
our soul can then shine.
we can recognize beauty because we've pushed away our own fog.
