Inner Work

Complete acceptance is
a tough pill to swallow,
but once it is taken
it helps dissolve sorrows.

To truly surrender
is a difficult deed,
letting go of control
watering planted seeds.

A secured self-esteem
is a slippery slope,
to balance the ego
provides inner hope.

The fruits from all labor
presents life with awards,
Self-work and improvements
offer greater rewards.

Outer viewed projections,
emerge from deep within.
Reflected perceived views,
can shed light on false wins.

Looking into the mind
could empower all dreams,
acknowledge self power
let it flow like a stream.

  1. Believe in yourself and your abilities. With hard work and determination, you can achieve anything you set your mind to.

  2. Beautiful. I don’t know why I always felt I would lose something if I surrendered when I had simply everything to gain. It was quite a journey❀️but I made it!
