You’d have me small, puny even
As if you’d been Photoshopped in for me
Thinking this enlarges you.
Removing me from the picture,
My confidence somehow
Threatens your ability
To know your true magnitude.
But there’s no use comparing,
My shrinking does not serve the uni-verse.
My expansion will continue regardless
Of your minimizing
I’ve plugged in.
You now must seek out the biggest version of you
Stripping away the belief
That little you, is all that you are.
The aperture is set.
The light floods in a flash.
The vastness of your power lies within,
Within the silent and dark corners
Of your soul.
Only there will you unfurl;
Can you connect
To the One
Responsible for developing your own greatness.
