Previously Unknown

Are we afraid of a mirror,

For showing us as we are?

Are we afraid of a mind reader,

For revealing the person within us?

What is it we are hiding,

Stopping ourselves to unearth?

What is it we aren’t acknowledging,

Stopping ourselves to discover?

Look beyond the unpaved paths,

Make a road of your own,

Look beyond your comfort zone,

Something surprising may await you,

The set rules aren’t always a norm,

There ain’t always a single path,

Explore the unexplored,

Get ready to be startled by your abilities,

Previously unknown.

Thoughts behind the poem :- Often we see only that is to be seen and don’t look beyond, denying ourselves of wonderful opportunities. Also for the fear of being judged we don’t acknowledge many a things, which would eventually stop our betterment. Stop, introspect, acknowledge, proceed.

Acknowledgements :- Thank you Sadje for running the What do you see # 7 Challenge. The challenge is to write a piece with inspiration drawn from the photo prompt. For rules please refer here. Thank you all for stopping by and reading.
