The Girl With the Kind Blue Eyes

One day I gazed deep into the mirror
Reflection caught me by surprise
For found within the love I held
For the girl with the kind blue eyes

The light went off and cried I did
When I recognized my demise
If I continued spewing hatred
Toward the girl with the kind blue eyes

With self-love finally came forgiveness
Once my demons; recognized
Blackened rage and purple pain deeply hidden
in the girl with the kind blue eyes

I hated myself because of his sin
For the haunted nights, my soul terrorized
Ripped open my shirt; spilled my demons on the floor
For the girl with the kind blue eyes

And on this day; my thirty-eighth trip around the sun
With self-worth recognized
I applaud the strong-vixen-warrior woman
Behind the girl with the kind blue eyes

  2. I may not know the girl with the kind blue eyes well (yet!), but I, too, applaud her strength and courage to rip open her shirt and let the demons fall out onto the floor. Blessings to the girl with the kind blue eyes as she continues on her path of finding self-love.

    Beautiful poem Kristian, eloquently and thoughtfully written! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜ We could all do with being kinder to ourselves and practising a bit more self love sometimes.

    Reblogged this on Notes and commented:
    To liberate yourself from the sins of others who might continue to project themselves upon you, golden words like these from Kristen can go a long way in seeking and attaining your own truth.

    image reflect
    choose to detect
    the passing of time
    in fact
    most of us too
    are vain
    not that you are
    but i know i am
    sadly

      I don’t see myself as vain, but I do have little quirks of vanity.

      I don’t know you well, but nothing I have seen makes me think you are vain. ๐Ÿ™‚

        I don’t think there’s anything wrong with seeking a little attention. However, yes, we should always remain a little humble so we stay grounded. Thank you for supporting my words, and your kind comments. I appreciate both! ๐Ÿ™

    Beautiful. It almost made me weep. And a belated happy birthday to you! I forgot to say it on the day. Forgive me!
