Born Again

“To be born again is not to become somebody else, but to become ourselves. “       
Thomas Merton

Check in the mirror and
see who’s looking back.

Look deeply into your eyes
and see the darkness
of the center.

Your smirking self
is not important.

Don’t be swayed
by glint of silver or grey;
for age speaks no

and even your scars,
your hard-worn skin,
creased and mortal
means nothing

in the darkness
of the center.
