Seeing

Thank you

To the strangers,
Who saw me in the street
And gifted a smile.

Thank you

To the teachers,
For seeing potential and strength,
For shaping body and mind into who I am today.

Thank you

To the healers,
Who saw what was healthy and whole,
When all I saw was brokenness and hurt.

Thank you

To the people who looked into my eyes and saw me,
As I voiced truths and dreams
I couldn’t admit
even to myself.

Thank you

To my family,
For seeing me as I am,
Not how you want me to be,
Always.

Thank you

To the friends who chose me, as I chose them.
For seeing me,
in light, and in shadow,
in weakness and in strength.

Thank you

To my partner, my lover, my other half,
For seeing me and helping me see myself clearer.
To see and to be seen by you,
there can be no greater gift.

Thank you

To that mysterious force that permeates my life and being,
for seeing me when there is no one else to see me,
and no light to see me by.

Thank you

To those who see the good and real and true in this world,
whose hearts see clearer than eyes ever could.

Keep seeing.

For the sake of all those who need to be seen.

I see you.
