A self portrait, a poem for @JennaRoseSimon by Tracy Diane Miller
I hold a mirror up to my soul
A pure reflection that I see
My artist’s eye captures an image
Then a self portrait came to be
Stunning in its truth
Silent yet it speaks
Compassion and respect are not empty words
They are what I always seek
A self portrait born of courage
A self portrait born of pain
A self portrait born to speak the truth
For honesty is gratefully gained
