Mirror #writephoto

Looking within 
is never 
easy 

We lie to 
ourselves 
all the time  

What do I see 
when my inner self 
is reflected back?  

The mirror 
not always kind 
showed the darkness 
within  

The Spirit 
pulls back that shroud  

Extending a hand 
to lift me 
cradle me 
love me  

Serenity 
calms the pools 
of reflection

The Window of
Promise
cleansed
