Self Talk

I look at myself in the mirror

“You’re a dork.”

I think I should be more positive

And try magnificent

“You’re a magnificent dork”

Maybe beautiful

“You’re a beautiful, magnificent dork!”

Maybe without the dork

“You’re a beautiful, magnificent fool!”

I sigh, closer to truth

If not completely clinched for the day

Foolish, I can live with that

Heart open

Eyes clear

This beautiful, magnificent fool heads for the door

  1. Works for me, though my own perception of you leans toward the magnificent — within & without.

    1. Thank you! Very kind of you.
