Unlocking Facets

I wish you would allow yourself to see me,

For all that I am.

I am the prayers of many who now lie still, the pains of a woman whose dreams she has washed and cried away.

I am the joy of transformation, the new age.

Can’t you see? 

I live and love for many.

The tears cried before the beginning ripple in my heart. 

If only you could fathom this, accepting the many facets that could make me yours.

These facets I cannot reject nor refuse, for they make me all you see.

All I ask is that you let your mind comprehend the possibilities of the beauty this could create.

Cease from closing your mind to this beauty and just let it be beautiful.

Unlock these facets and love me whole.

Well, I've always had a passion for writing. I would describe myself as a feminist, a womanist and a humanist. Poetry is something I've developed a great passion for. Apart from that, I also spend time reading...although this might make me come about sounding like an introvert, I still like to think of myself as an extrovert! I love making new friends and meeting new people. I hope this blog allows others to share and enjoy my work and hopefully share their views and opinions about various issues :)

  1. I love this. I say love is that feeling that makes us immune to the flaws of that one person. So yes, if you’ll love me, love me whole.

    Lovely bit! 🙂
