"You may have ideas...", poem by Morgan Harper Nichols

A beautiful poem by Morgan Harper Nichols, from her book "All Along You Were Blooming". Thanks to Kris for pointing it out to me, and reading it to us in one of our classes.

Here it is:

You may have ideas about how others

see you,

but you are not defined

by their perceptions.

You are not an object

under someone else's magnifying glass,

whose only purpose

is to be observed.

You are a living, breathing human being

with a beautiful soul

that is on a hope - anchored journey

of learning what it means to be whole.
