Renunciation

We are not yet
Fully realized.
There are bars within
To be broken
Battles of the soul
To be won
Habits of the heart
To be undone
Self-destructive paths
To be walked back.
Beneath our insecurities
And strongholds
Lies a version of ourselves
So bright
So whole
So fully human.
O for the day when
When we see the face in the mirror
We’d always sensed was there
But never dared to believe
Could exist.
