Namaste – Poetry and Art by Justin Gaffrey

Mixed media art by Justin Gaffrey

 

you are not who you think you are
you are not who you think you are
you are not who you think you are
you are not what you are afraid of
you are not who you love
you are not what they say you are
you are not what they taught you
you are not your job
you are not who you think you are
you are not who your neighbor thinks you are
you are not what they did to you
rip your hair, peel your skin, tear your flesh, break your bones, erase your mind, trash the pain, discard the envy, be kind to what’s inside
love what’s under your bones
love what you hate in others
shed your skin, shed your life, accept your beauty
be who you were before you knew who you are.
