Turn From The Dark

In the person they describe
I do not recognize myself
I know my deep-seated negativity
All the things that I’ve done wrong
My faults and failures
On my fingertips to list
Protest on my tongue
At all the good and beautiful
They feel the need to specify
The mirror and I see the shadows
The ones who love me see the light
For them I’m very grateful
For now I see the Yin and the Yang
And gravitate to the glow.
