Her Iridescent Heart

She stood in a dim light before her heart
Seeing a dull reflection mirroring her assumed roles,
Worthy of society’s approving pat on the back,
Empty.

She stood in darkness behind her heart
Weighted by a lifetime of self-inflicted fears,
Warranting a tearful ugly release,
Lost.

She then stepped inside the iridescent glow of her heart
Feeling immense love, acceptance, and belonging,
Giddy with peace, purpose, and possibilities,
Full and found.
