I am thrilled to have been voted Author of the Month at Spillwords Press for Jan/Feb 2021! I wanted to say a MASSIVE thank you to everyone who voted for me: this means so much and I am so grateful for your time, kind words and support. Another heartfelt thank you to Dagmara and the team at Spillwords for featuring my work and interviewing me earlier this year. Spillwords truly is a place where words matter, and I recommend you visit their website to discover many more fantastic authors.
To celebrate this achievement, I would like to share a poem I wrote about self-acceptance:
Look at me, what do you see?
I’m perfect imperfection:
chipped nails, a worn-out face
and homecut hair…
Are you like me? A perfect figment of
your own imagination,
projecting a false image you think others
wish to see?
Do you think that they will love you more?
Because the most beautiful trait in all the world is
Beauty is truth and
truth is beauty, therefore
let it shine:
Unleash the light that hides within;
new-project the Divine…
Who would not wish to see that holy light?
Who sees it not, they have to bear that loss:
Shine on, all glorious and unrestrained
reborn, no more to bear
self-loathing’s self-wrought cross.
