you are brave.

you look in the mirror
and i know you don’t see it,
but it’s there.
it lives in you.
it made your heart its home.
it shines in you when you can’t sleep
until your heart is on paper.
it is as real as your heartbeat.
it’s woven in your words.
it rings in your voice when you sing.
i see it in your eyes when you smile.
and i will say it until you believe it.
you, darling, are brave.
