In a certain light that’s fading
I am beauty
I am grace
They send me messages to tell me
Of the beauty in my face
In a certain light
I’m sure that’s true
Age has tracked me down
Cornered me and keened
The wrinkles and the grey
The softening in between
Would some then dare remark
How my spirit shines
Or that my mind is fascinating
My humor there it seems
Well stocked and well equipped
With a smart retort and quip
Right there on my lip
Would that my inner self
Show beyond the skin
I’m beautiful within
The light is fading dying
Twilight has come again
My beauty is revealed
As the light begins to dim
There’s a chorus in the moonrise
There’s a song emanating from the stars
There’s a dance that never ends
I take two steps and back again
I’m beautiful it’s certain
In a certain light
I still lay my head upon the pillow
Alone another night
Will he see the bright beginning
Right here near the end
Will he approach with reverence
The soul I hold within
Will there be a time of reckoning
Where joy and happiness are twin
To the darkness I endured
To make it worth it
Help it mend
1 thought on “In a Certain Light”
Beautifully honest poem.
Not sure which pic is which in terms of chronological posting, though I believe your video presentation on healing & the chakras (I’m personally into the third eye & a bit of the crown chakra) to be recent.
At the rush offending you (though I certainly apologize your feelings & sensibilities at the time you wrote the this poem), let’s just say that I so strongly disagree with your appraisal of your own appearance. Saying more, would in all likelihood be inappropriate.
Needless to say you have so much to offer the Universe, anyway & I think you know that I’m a huge fan of so much of your work.
Why do I preach to you in this condescending manner? I don’t know…sorry. Please tell me to go to hell, if appropriate.
