Glowing self

And one day

as you relentlessly explore your house

you shall find yourself confronted

with your glowing self

and then you will be shocked to realize

how dark your shape is

when compared to your golden essence

That sight might depress

and discourage you

and you might yourself

bad an’ hopeless

and you might start fleeing this golden light

as you’d flee the devil itself

for ‘t is a too cruel reminder

of the potential you have left behind

But believe the first instinct of your heart

your childish fascination as you meet

this glowing ball of light

and you first want to come closer

to see it and inspect it with your own hands

Trust your initial awe and your wonder

that made you dream

to one day shine

with the same light

as this secret hidden self of yours glows
