Why am I afraid of
Looking you in your eyes,
Diving into your soul,
And plumbing its depths?

I know just what I’ll find there:

It is all of me,
For we are truly one.

But I am still not ready,
I’m still lacking in grace
For myself
To face the entirety of who I am.

So I cling to your goodness
In fervent hope
That I’ll be reminded of the
Of Love and Beauty
That exist within me too.
